Welcome to Westwood Academy

Westwood Academy is a primary school for children that welcomes pupils aged from 2 to 11.  We aim to provide an education where the individual child defines everything we do. We hope that our website provides a sense of our school values, and the aspirations we have for the pupils in our care.  Please explore to learn more about our school or contact us to arrange a visit – we are looking forward to being able to welcome visitors, COVID-19 permitting, in the future.

Visit us virtually!.

Due to restrictions on the number of visitors to the school, we will not be holding open mornings as we have done previously during this year.  This is to mitigate the risk of possible transmission of COVID-19.

Instead, we asked some of our year 6 pupils to make a video showing what would normally be highlighted during the open mornings – this will hopefully allow you to get a flavour of our school as well as give some of our older students the opportunity to have the responsibility of completing a really important project.

The video and some useful Frequently Asked Questions can be found here.

Our latest newsletter.

We send out a weekly newsletter via Parentmail to all parents and carers.  To find the latest and previous newsletters, you can click here.

Home learning resources.

If any individual year groups or the school as a whole has to close due to COVID-19, home learning resources will appear here.

If there are any more COVID-19 closures of school, we’ll be adding information primarily through our Facebook page.  Find us by searching @westwoodessex on Facebook, or click the Facebook logo above to go straight there.

Spaces at Westwood.

We are currently full or oversubscribed in all year groups.  Please contact the office if you would like to discuss spaces or to be added to our waiting list.

Please note that the cost of admissions appeals are paid for entirely by the school, which means that less resources for pupils can be bought.
