Welcome to Westlands Primary School. We are an exciting, forward looking, and innovative school.
Our children are hard-working, enjoy a challenge and love to learn. We provide a huge array of activities for children to broaden their experiences which you will be able to see through our news and updates. Working in partnership with parents, carers and other key members of the community we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all.
If you want to find out about what we are learning please have a look at our ‘year group’ pages. Paper copies are available on request from the school office.
The website is regularly updated so come back again soon to keep up to date with everything that is going on here at Westlands Primary School!

To kick off our week on fireworks the year R children enjoyed a story and a smore around the fire.
The pupils in Year 5 and 6 took part in a workshop this week about staying safe from issues such as gangs and staying safe on the streets. The workshop was delivered by Excelsior CEO, Mark Pearson, who served for 30 years in the police force. The children enjoyed having the opportunity to discuss these topics.
Pupils listened to Mark tell them about Josh's Story. It helps them to build their resilience to saying no to gangs, drugs and violence and helps them develop the thinking skills to better understand the risks they may well experience and to make the right positive choices.
This was explored through the personal experience of 'Josh', his family and his friends.
Westlands have been awarded the Gold Standard Award for Literacy!
Thank you to everyone who helped with this, including everyone who donated the food for the foodbank.
Our school is a large primary academy in Swale in the process of moving from a two to three form entry school. Since September 2014, we have been growing by a class each year and by September 2018 we will have three classes in every year group.
We have been part of the Swale Academies Trust since 2010. We work closely with our ‘sister schools’ within the Trust to ensure that best practice is shared between us for the benefit of all children.
Westlands Primary School enjoys positive relationships with parents & carers and we value the collaborative connections we have worked hard to build up. A strong pastoral team exists within the school to support families with a wide variety of issues that may come about. We have an active PTFA who organise many events throughout the school year as well as a Parent Forum who bring a unique perspective to school developments.
