We work alongside a variety of organisations in order to provide the best education we can to our pupils.

Please see below for further information on these partnerships and how they benefit Westglade.

Parents of Westglade (POW)

We are really fortunate to have the support of a great group of parents who work with school to make Westglade even better.

They organise events, raise money for the school and improve the environment.

The group meet regularly in the community room first thing every Friday morning, after the children begin school. Our fantastic parent support worker, Mrs Radmall, is also available at this time. If you would like to get involved and have a coffee with other parents we would be delighted to see you.

They are currently working on a project to help us refurbish the school library area in Key Stage One hall. POW have offered to paint some of the furniture and we would be very happy to see any other volunteers.
