Testimonials

I have been working with Westfield House School since it was taken over by the current Head Teacher, Jo Murray.

In that time I have been very impressed by the enthusiasm and drive to make the school a positive, productive and nurturing environment for the students, and by the efficiency and care taken to ensure that Personal Education Plans and Education, Health and Care Plans are regularly and thoughtfully reviewed by the Designated Teacher for LAC.

The staff are always a pleasure to work with.

Melissa Horn – Cambridgeshire’s Virtual School for Looked After Children

My son joined Westfield House School in early 2017, having spent the last year in a short stay school after being removed from mainstream. He was, on an almost daily basis, being sent home and excluded even from the short stay school designed to be able to deal with his behavioural issues. I visited two schools while looking for somewhere suitable for my son to attend full time, Westfield House School stood out as the best of those two by far. My son has now been attending Westfield House School for little over a year and has never been sent home in this time. His decision making and techniques to deal with his behavioural issues have been worked on by the staff. He actively enjoys going to school and is upset if he has to miss a day. I 100% made the right choice sending my son to Westfield House School, their attitude to learning, belief in the students and no-nonsense approach to rules and boundaries have meant my son feels safe, secure and at home around the staff and students. Now my son can achieve anything he puts his mind to knowing his school will support him every step of the way.

Parent Feedback – Scott Samuels

It has been a blessing finding Westfield school. In the short time our Jamie has been there we have seen a big change, he comes home happy and remembers what he has been learning, which didn’t happen in the past.
There is the right mix of hard work, fun and learning alternative skills, such as team work and animal care. We are so happy to have found such a wonderful place.
But the greatest review comes from Jamie when I asked him if 1 was the saddest and 10 is the happiest you could be he said 10 with a huge smile on his face. That says it all.

Parent/Carer Feedback

Westfield House School is a fantastic environment where the children are free to express themselves and learn in a safe and supportive environment. The teaching staff show real enthusiasm for the subjects they teach and are always there to talk with myself and my child to resolve any issues or to just provide positive feedback about the day. The whole school is child focussed and all young people there are supported to reach their full potential whatever their background. I couldn’t imagine anywhere better to meet my child’s educational needs.
