Welcome from the headteacher

Welcome to Westfield Junior School.

I am delighted to be the  headteacher at Westfield Junior School. Westfield is a thriving learning community in the centre of St Ives. The school is fortunate to benefit from a diverse school community, extensive grounds and from the amenities available within St Ives. We have a dedicated, hardworking team of staff who ensure they have high expectations of the pupils in their care and find ways to enhance the curriculum through trips, visitors and enrichment opportunities.

This year our staff are working hard to develop a 'Growth Mindset' culture in which children recognise the value of hard work, think about how they learn and challenge themselves. In addition, we are working closely with the Cambridgeshire Maths Hub to develop the teaching of maths to ensure deeper learning. Our teachers are using rich texts as a stimulus for their work in English and they continue to encourage the children to be actively engaged in their reading.

Underpinning the work of the school is our emphasis on pastoral care. We work hard to ensure that all our children feel valued, part of our community and that they support one another. .
