Westgate Primary School

Friday Letter

Friday 7th December 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.

Christmas Bingo – Wednesday 5th December

What a wonderful time we all had at the Bingo Evening on Wednesday night! The hall was crammed and the hampers were packed full of goodies. We raised approximately £1300! Well done everyone!

Our thanks go to everyone who donated prizes for hampers or the raffle and everyone who attended on the evening, but especially to Mrs Purcell and the Friends of Westgate School, who organised the whole event – no easy task!

Christmas Selection box raffle

Tickets for our Christmas selection box raffle are now on sale. The draw for the raffle is held in our final assembly of the term, which will be on Friday 21st December. We would be very grateful for donations of selection boxes to be sent into school, we have bought a few, but the more prizes we have the more winners there will be!


What time will the elves wake Santa?

Santa’s alarm clock has been wound up in assembly, and sealed in the Christmas Box, which means the competition to guess the time that the elves will wake Santa is on! The time on the clock will be revealed in the final assembly of the year and the prize for the nearest time is £100!

‘Times’ cost £1.00 each and are available from the school office.


Santa’s Grotto

Santa’s Grotto will open on Monday and is the perfect opportunity for children to choose Christmas presents for the adults in their lives. Children will be able to choose from a selection of items, then the adults in the Grotto will help them to wrap and label their gifts. The cost is £3.00 per present, but siblings are able to go together to choose a present, eg a brother and sister could go together to choose and giftwrap a present for their Mum. Wednesday 12th will be the very last day that you can buy tickets for Santa’s Grotto, so if you haven’t bought tickets yet, you need to be quick!



Our school council members have been telling us all about plastic pollution, and the problems it is causing for our animals and their habitats. The representatives have shown KS2 children how to make ‘Ecobricks’ using a plastic bottle and filling it with non-recyclable plastic waste. These ‘Ecobricks can then be used to build all sorts of things!

If you would like to have a go at making one, look at our Facebook page for more information. Completed ‘Ecobricks’ can then be brought to school and left in a box by the school office.






Super Work certificates

Certificates are given out in assembly each week to children who have been working extremely hard and we would like to share their success with you.

This week children in the following classes received certificates:
