Westgate Primary School

Friday Letter

Friday 12th October 2018





Dear Parents,

 On Tuesday of this week, at around 7.45 am, a vehicle in the Children’s Centre car park narrowly missed hitting a young child walking through the car park with their parent. We want to avoid any accidents on the school site at any time of the day. Consequently we will make sure the pedestrian gates are both open as early as possible to reduce the numbers walking through the Children’s Centre car park.

 We would be very grateful for your assistance in keeping the school site safe by considering the following actions:


  • Park outside on the road and walk in through one of the pedestrian gates
  • Do not use the Children’s Centre car park as a short cut to the Children’s Centre main entrance – walk up to the school entrance and turn right along the perimeter of the car park
  • Do not park in the bay reserved for disabled parking
  • During the dark mornings wear something light or reflective
  • Breakfast Club parents park on the school car park to reduce traffic on the Children’s Centre car park (which is much smaller)
  • Drive very slowly on the school site even though you may be pushed for time – be very aware there could be small children around

 Thank you in advance for your cooperation in keeping our children, and their parents, safe and sound.

 If there are further incidents like this our only option will be to consider closing the car parks to any vehicles during the early morning period.



S.W.Robinson (Headteacher)



Reading books and reading records

Please make sure that your child brings their reading book and record into school every day – you never know when we might get the chance to read! We especially need to see the reading record on Mondays to see who has read 3 times or more the previous week.


Friends of Westgate School

Many thanks to all the parents who came to our meeting on Wednesday, the team came up with some great new ideas for fundraising…so watch this space for new events!

If anyone would like to help with events such as the bingo evenings, discos and the Summer Fair, it’s never too late to volunteer! Just ring the school and ask to speak to Sharon Purcell who chairs the ‘Friends’ group.


Neon Discos

The Friends of Westgate School are holding Neon discos on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th November.

Wed 14th November – Reception (new hall), Y1&Y2 (old hall)

Thurs 15th November – Y3&4 (old hall), Y5&6 (new hall)

Both discos will run from 4.00pm until 5.30pm.

The tickets, which also entitle children to a drink and a goodie bag, cost £2.50 each. Tickets are on sale until Monday 12th. We will not be selling any more tickets after the 12th as we need to have exact numbers by that date in order to buy supplies.


PE and sports kits needed in school

At Westgate School, we value the importance of P.E. in our National Curriculum. It is therefore essential that children have a complete P.E. kit in school. Ideally P.E. kit should be kept in school for the whole half term.

P.E. kit consists of a white t-shirt, blue shorts and pumps for indoor activities. For outdoor activities, the children can wear their indoor kit with a jumper or jacket, leggings or tracksuit bottoms and trainers. It is important that kit is clearly labelled, in a bag that can hang on a peg or fit in a locker. P.E. kit can be purchased from the school office or from any major retailer.

In addition, for safety reasons, long hair needs to be tied back and children are not permitted to wear jewellery of any kind when doing P.E. (including swimming). If possible,  earrings should be removed and left at home on the days that your child has P.E. Unfortunately staff cannot tape over or remove earrings for children. If your child cannot remove their earrings, they will not be able to take an active role in lessons.

For our daily ‘Run a Mile’, children can take part in an appropriate pair of school shoes or trainers (preferably without laces for younger children). Pumps are not suitable.


Next Parents’ Evening

Our parents’ evenings for this term will take place on Tuesday 30th October and Thursday 1st November from 3.30-7.30pm.

Attached to this letter is a tear off slip to fill in and return to your child’s class teacher.

Please tick your preferred day and slot, and the teacher will send you an appointment within, or as near as possible to, your chosen time slot on the day of your choosing. Please help us to allocate you a suitable appointment by returning the slip as soon as possible. Unfortunately parents who do not return the slip might be given an appointment that may not be suitable for them.
