Ski Trip 2017

Following previous successful trips organised by Westlands School, we are now looking forward to winter 2017 and we are very excited to offer your child a once in a lifetime ski trip to the USA.

Your child will learn to ski in the fabulous resorts of Loon and Cannon Mountain, New Hampshire during the February Half Term holidays in 2017.

We will be staying at the Indian Head Resort with spectacular views from modern and spacious rooms and take a dip in the indoor or year round heated outdoor pool! Further to this we are also going to spend one night in New York City!

  • 02-12-2016 - Nut Allergy Awareness

    Dear Parents and Carers

    The issue of allergies of any kind is one which we as a school have to take seriously.  Our school has an obligation to be as inclusive as possible, so children with allergies can be included in the normal, everyday activities organised at school.  Nut allergies are increasingly common and serious.

    We have a number of children who suffer from nut allergies.  The allergy of one of our pupils is so servere that they could have a reaction by being close to someone eating nuts or who has eaten nuts or who has used a product containing nut oil such as hand cream or other cosmetics.  This is know as an airborne nut allergy and it can be life threatening.  Unless we make a real effort as a school community to become 'nut free' then the lives of a small number of children and their families can be blighted.  Many primary schools are now 'nut free' and whilst I understand this is much more of an undertaking in a large school such as Westlands, we all need to make a greater effort.  We will continue to educate children about the risks.

    I am therefore asking for your support, especially as we approach the Christmas season.  Perhaps you could consider:

    1. As a priority, avoid giving your child any food or product that you know contains nuts and which they bring to school.

    2. Read the labels on less obvious products such as chocolates, sweets and cosmetics before you send them into school with your child.

    3. Encourage your child to avoid buying foods which contain nuts on their journey to school.

    4. Where possible, avoid giving your children breakfast foods which have a high concentration of nuts.

    I have seen first-hand the impact a nut allergy can have on a child.  As a parent myself I cannot begin to imagine the anxiety a condition like this would cause to a whole family.  I hope you agree that a few simple steps can make such a difference.

    Kind regards.

    Mr Cox, Headteacher

  • 17-11-2016 - Swale Sixth Form: Friday 25 November 2016

    On Friday 25 November 2016 Sittingbourne Community College has a staff training day and will be closed to all pupils.  Therefore no Sixth Form lessons will take place at SCC on 25 November.  Please note, the Skills Centre will also be closed on Friday 25 November for all pupils.

    However, due to the change in date of Westlands School's staff training day, lessons will continue as normal at this site.  Any pupil, whether based at SCC or Westlands who have lessons at Westlands on a Friday, MUST attend those lessons as normal.

    Minibuses will NOT be operating between the sites on this day.  SCC pupils who have lessons at Westlands will need to make their own arrangements.  Westlands pupils who normally travel over to SCC for lessons, will not be required to attend for those periods on that day.

    Please telephone either of the Sixth Form offices if you require confirmation of any of the arrangements for this day.

    Principal, Swale Sixth Form

    Deputy Headteacher
