Our school works in partnership with many groups, schools and organisations. Some of these partnerships are local and some are national.
Working in partnership with parents is of paramount importance to us here at Westroyd. We believe that working closely with parents, helps us deliver the best possible outcomes for all our children as we aim to ensure that all our children become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.
Westroyd is part of a close knit ‘Family of schools' in our immediate locality known as the Pudsey cluster. The cluster consists of primary and high schools who meet together regularly to share strategies for school improvement. We spend time in one another’s schools sharing good practice and learning and improving together and meet regularly to address the needs of the area and work in partnership with each other. Through this investment and partnership our families and staff are able to access a wide range of services for support. Should you wish to contact the cluster, the Pudsey cluster website is http://pudseycluster.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our school has a well established link with School Direct and various other Higher Education Establishments. We work closely with and support the Sports students who spend time with us, when on placement and when coaching/teaching lunchtime activities.
To support the needs of all our children, it is important that we develop and maintain partnerships with a whole range of agencies. We have good relationships with the School Nursing Team, Educational Psychologists, specialist teaching services, speech and language therapists, and other professionals.
Westroyd works closely with St John's Church in Farsley. We take part in special services at the Church at Easter, Harvest festival and Christmas. Both Staff and Children are involved in a Carol concert held at the Church at Christmas.
Throughout the year children take part in various community activities whether it be Heritage Treasure Hunts, Visiting Farsley Live at Home, Making scarecrows for the Scarecrow Festival or taking part in the Parade at Farsley Lights.
Westroyd's after school football club takes place weekly. The club offers football coaching and encourages girls and boys of all abilities to take part and improve and work on their ball skills. The club is fun and enjoyable and enables children to develop their life skills. The coaching sessions are tailored to the needs of the child encouraging team work and learning to take responsibility, and help improve children's confidence and self esteem.
