We are hoping for applications from existing teachers and from trainees who are at the end of their training.

Westgate school is a large primary school (580 on roll.) This September will see our final phase expansion to full three form entry. Retaining our OFSTED 'good' rating in February 2017 the Westgate team are hard working, supportive and enthusiastic. 

We have an excellent record in terms of supporting the development of teachers and we hold our staff in very high regard, they are our most valuable resource and so we take time to nurture and value them. Staff enjoy coming to work and most give 100% to both children and colleagues. We all work hard here and our efforts are rewarded with the satisfaction gained from seeing children move on with their learning. 

The school population comes from a range of backgrounds, free meals entitlement is 20% and many have difficulties outside school. We have a strong Pastoral Team to support our work with our children.
