Welcome to Westlands School
Welcome to Westlands School. If you are reading this message on our website, I would strongly advise you to come and visit us so that you can see for yourself what a great school we have. Westlands School is based on a tradition of success in terms of high achievement, a caring approach to our students, and in providing opportunities for all. Whatever your background, learning needs, gifts and talents, we believe we can offer all students a chance to do well, both with regard to their learning and in preparation for adulthood. As a large school we have facilities to appeal to students who are academic, creative, and practical. There really is something for everybody. Find out more here.
Parent View gives you the chance to tell us what you think about the Westlands School.

26-04-2018 - Difficult Conversations with Young People
Welcome to the Parent Info newsletter.
Some conversations with young people are not easy. We know that.
Finding the right way to enter into discussions – to share important and clear messages and to encourage them to open up to their own views and concerns – requires not only a considered approach, but also a knowledge and understanding about the topics being discussed.
In this newsletter, we have four new articles which can empower you for some of the more difficult topics you might talk about with young people.
The Dove Self Esteem Project's article on positive body image explores the pressures of appearance on young people, while the Home Office's Disrespect NoBody campaign covers the issues of consent, sexting and spotting signs of abusive relationships.
We hope you find them useful.
Read our latest advice
Our latest article from the Dove Self Esteem Project offers support and guidance for when you need to initiate difficult discussions about pressures to look a certain way.
18-04-2018 - Parent Forum Wednesday 18 April
We have the pleasure of welcoming HeadStart Kent to our Parent Forum meeting tomorrow (Wednesday 18 April 2018). This will be held in the library from 7pm-8pm if you would like to attend.
The idea of the session is to share information on resilience and how parents can support their children through stressful times as they are growing older and pressures begin to increase.
