Join us at 5pm on 18 November for Year 7 Information Evening - for Year 5 and 6 pupils thinking of joining the Westbourne Family

Westbourne's Junior teachers and school life are given top score by its pupils

A unanimous thumbs up to life and learning at Westbourne from our Junior pupils

The results are just in from our Junior School survey of pupil satisfaction. The message is loud and clear – from Year 1 to Year 6 - our children tell us that across the board they are happy and motivated with life at Westbourne School.

First, we listened to our Senior School pupils and now we’ve listened to our Junior School pupils. In both areas of school, pupils are highly satisfied according to the national PASS survey (pupil attitudes to self and school). Why does this matter? We know that our children’s ability to flourish in any academic environment is determined by how they feel about school.

The survey is voluntary, but at Westbourne our pupils’ voice matters. The exercise offers us an important tool for identifying trends in the way pupils feel about school, especially any issues that teachers need to address. These are measured in nine areas around our teaching and their learning. Junior School pupils have awarded us the highest scores in each area.

Mr Clark, Head of Junior School said:

“We know that happiness and wellbeing are fundamental to pupils’ success. At Westbourne, teachers really get to know each child and their needs. A broad curriculum, small class sizes, close pastoral support including MAPS (More Able Pupils), SEN (special educational needs), zero tolerance to bullying, Forest School and the opportunity to speak to an adult – these are just some of the reasons for these exceptional results.

 

Our nurturing approach and individualised learning is about bringing out the best in each child. Junior School teachers and our learning environment have received a big thumbs up from our pupils and I’m delighted. However, we never rest on our laurels and we’ll be working as hard as ever to maintain this positive momentum throughout school.”

Your choice. Their future.
