About Westfield School
Head of School: Mr J Birkbeck
Executive Headteacher: Mrs R Paul
Westfield School is on the cusp of achieving great things. Over the last year leadership has been under Chorus Education Trust – an inclusive and aspirational local Trust that is drawing on the very best teaching and learning across South Yorkshire and Derbyshire. The school legally joined the Trust in December 2018.
With solid foundations in place, a new Headteacher is working with staff to ensure that the Trust’s ethos of ‘Outstanding Achievement for All’ is at the core of all work at Westfield. The school has a strong tradition of inclusion, whilst aspiring for the very best education, opportunities and results possible for all students. We are passionate about transforming our students' life chances.
This is a school where, if you have the drive, talent and commitment, you can make great progress. It is a happy school with supportive and willing staff, students and parents. It has excellent facilities, particularly for sport – with a sports centre (including swimming pool), which can be used for free by staff.
We have been through some challenging times but, in the last year, we have definitely turned the corner. Our new leadership team, along with our dedicated staff, have been working with local feeder schools and parents to move Westfield towards becoming the fantastic school it was always meant to be.
Chorus Education Trust is committed to providing the very best opportunities for both staff and students. It is built upon the outstanding practice of its founding school, Silverdale, and seeks to work in partnership with both primary and secondary schools across South Yorkshire and Derbyshire. A key part of the Trust is its Teaching School, the Sheffield Teaching School Alliance – one of the largest in the country. We believe in CPD from Initial Teacher Training through to subject specialist training, then middle and senior leadership. We will support you to achieve the very best in your career.
