Statement Regarding Online Article

An online post referencing Westfield Community School was published on 23 November 2023 using a recent image of a member of our Pastoral Team.  I would like to make it clear that the member of staff pictured is in no way related to this article and we requested that the image be removed from the sites to which it has been published. The image has correctly now been removed.


The article refers to historic events of abuse over 40 years ago in 1982 and did not involve staff of Westfield Academy. With no current member of staff remaining from that time, we have no knowledge of any circumstances relating to the events and therefore cannot comment in any way on these specific incidents. 


Our thoughts are with the members of the wider community of Yeovil who have been affected.

Mr S Dallimore, Headteacher
