During our assembly this week, we presented flowers to Mrs Gilchrist and Miss Thomas because it was, sadly, their last day at Westwood. We are all going to miss them and hope that they will keep in touch.

We also said, ‘congratulations’ to Mr and Mrs Bradley who are celebrating their Ruby Wedding anniversary this weekend.


Our sporting teams were competing during the week and so I had the fabulous job of presenting certificates AND a trophy!! . KS1 participated in a sporting festival organised by Chorley Sports Partnership. Well done team, you performed brilliantly!

On Tuesday evening we took a team of Y5 and Y6 children to Clayton Green Sports Centre where they represented Westwood in the annual Clayton Cup event. And what an event it was! Through effort, team-work and determination, the children finished third overall (our highest place finish in many years) and were also presented with the sportsmanship certificate. They went on to show true grit in the tug of war, winning their first round…and their second round…and then the grand final! In the photograph you can see Westwood’s tug of war ‘secret weapon’, Chelsea, holding up a well-earned trophy.

Last but not least in this action-packed assembly, our Westwood Award children received their certificates. Well done children for showing such focus and hard working attitudes all week.
