Open Day 2020
Welcome to Westfield Academy
We are delighted that you are interested in seeing what Westfield Academy has to offer.
A highlight in our school calendar, Open Day is an important event for staff and students, as it gives us the opportunity to demonstrate our school with pride.
We are disappointed that you cannot experience the school in person.
We hope the following videos and information give you an insight into our school, enabling you to make an informed choice.
Our new prospectus can also be viewed here and copies will be distributed via Primary Schools next week.
In the videos below our staff are talking about the school as it would usually operate, we hope that life will return to "normal" by September 2021.

We will continue to answer queries from Monday 5 October - Friday 23 October 2020.
Since operating the school in a Covid Secure manner is significantly more labour intensive than normal, whilst our staff will endeavour to answer your queries as quickly as possible, there may unfortunately be delays depending on demand.
This presentation was shared with our Year 7 students before the summer to aid transition, you may also find it useful to find out more about the school - Year 6 Transition 2020
Applications for Secondary School places should be made through Somerset County Council’s website www.somerset.gov.uk/admissions. The deadline for parents to submit applications for secondary school places is Saturday 31 October - this applies to all children moving from primary to secondary school, or middle to upper school, in September 2021.
We have produced these videos and this webpage "in-house" to avoid unnecessary visitors on-site, to avoid additional risk of self isolation of students and staff and the associated impact on our students' education.
Our thanks go to Mrs Karchud, Mrs Moseley & Mrs Mitchell for the production of our Virtual Open Day.
