Westgate Primary School

Friday Letter

Friday 11th october 2019



Friends of Westgate School

Many thanks to all the parents who came to our meeting  last 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.


Halloween Discos

The Friends of Westgate School are holding Halloween discos on Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th October.

Tuesday 29th – Reception (new hall), Y1&Y2 (old hall)

Wednesday 30th – Y3&4 (old hall), Y5&6 (new hall)

Both discos will run from 4.00pm until 5.30pm.

There is no need to buy tickets before hand as it is a pay on the door event. The cost will be £2 per child which pays for entrance to the disco as well as

a drink and bag of sweets to take home.


Flu Vaccinations

Earlier this term the school, on behalf of the NHS, sent out consent forms to enable your child to receive the flu vaccination. If you wish your child to receive this vaccination, you must return the form back to school as soon as possible. Thank you.


Keeping Safe

Please can we remind all families to keep to the allocated paths around the external areas around the school. There have been several children and families cutting through the staff car park or walking along the roadway within the school grounds. The designated paths are there for everyone’s safety and we urge you to stick to them – thank you.  


Next Parents’ Evening

Our parents’ evenings for this term will take place on Wednesday 16th  October and Thursday 17th October 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.

Dear Parents,

  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.




K. Wright (Headteacher)
