    Incident on the School Farm


    As many parents will be aware, a serious incident recently occurred on the Westlands School Farm.


    I feel it is important to make a statement to reassure the school community as to the nature of the incident and the steps the school is taking to respond.
    A group of boys trespassed onto the school site on two separate days over the Christmas holiday period.  They opened the pens to a number of animals, as well as being a general nuisance.  Eleven chickens disappeared, and one pig was injured, although it has made a swift recovery. It is likely that the chickens were killed by foxes as a result of being let loose from their pens. This is significantly different to what is being reported on news and social media.  However, a boy, who is not a member of the school, was cruel to at least one animal as witnessed on CCTV, and we are reassured by police that he has been arrested.


    Mr Cox, Headteacher, is in almost daily contact with the police so that the matter is dealt with appropriately.  The school has 24-hour CCTV on the farm and footage is being used by the police in their ongoing investigation.  Any Westlands pupil identified as part of the group of trespassers will be isolated until the investigation has established the facts.  Although this incident is shocking, especially for the young farmers and staff on the farm, the school are resolute that the farm will thrive in the future.  Westlands School are grateful for the offers of support they have already received from members of the community.


    I wish to reassure the community the farm is an invaluable part of the school and we will do everything in our power to ensure that it continues to go from strength to strength.

    Dear Parent/Carer

    In the event of a school closure the best place to obtain up to date information is the school website.  Furthermore we will try and send out a message.  If you are still unsure we will do our best to have a member of staff on our switchboard.  Do not rely on local radio.

    Thank you.
