  • 23-02-2017 - Consultation on Changing School Skirts

    Dear Parent/Carer

    At Westlands, we are very pleased that the vast majority of our pupils wear their school uniform well and with pride. However, over the course of the year, we have become concerned about the way that some of our female pupils are wearing their school skirts: at times, they are too short to be considered appropriate for a formal environment.

    We accept that the current style of our school skirt does not help this situation, and is unpopular with some pupils and parents. We are therefore starting a consultation process to look at the style of school skirt we should adopt in future.

    With this in mind, I would like to invite you to a Parents Forum on 1 March so that we can hear your views. The meeting will take place at 7.00pm and will last for one hour.

    It is important to us that the final decision is one that is made in a collaboration between pupils, parents and staff. So I very much hope you are able to attend and let us know what you think.

    If you would like to attend the Parents Forum meeting, please confirm by emailing chh@westlands.kent.sch.uk and let us know your child's name and community, your name and the number of people attending.

    Yours faithfully 

    Miss C Honess

  • 24-02-2017 - Essential Equipment

    Dear Parent/Carer

    Please could you check your child has the required equipment for school ready for the start of next week.  This should be as a minimum; a black pen, ruler and pencil.  We have found this week that pupils are lacking the essential equipment to support their learning within the classroom.

    Thank you for your support in this matter.

    Yours faithfully

    Mrs Sapp

    Assistant Headteacher
