Ofsted Report


Welcome Letter

A warm welcome to you from the pupils, staff and governors of Westleigh Methodist Primary School. I do hope that the information contained within our website will help to introduce you to the friendly and welcoming atmosphere of our school where the individual nature of every child is recognised and valued. We are committed to working together to ensure all children reach their potential. We are a Christian school with a strong, caring and inclusive ethos where every child really does matter! 

We converted to academy status on 1st September 2013.  As an academy, Westleigh Methodist benefits from greater freedom to innovate and raise standards, allowing us to personalise our curriculum and continue to meet individual needs as creatively as possible.  We endeavour to support children in becoming confident and independent learners in a rapidly changing world.

We want children to be excited about coming to school and to love learning. We want them to be motivated, tuned in, and challenged. We want children to know that success is in each and every one of them and comes as a result of their own effort. Most of all, we want to give them the belief that they can improve and learn, and to be delighted and proud of their many achievements.

The best way of judging any school is to visit during a working day. Please arrange to visit us - You will always be welcomed and I am confident you will be impressed.

I look forward to seeing you soon

Acorn Trust – ‘Sowing seeds for a brighter future.’

From September 2013, Westleigh Methodist and Bedford Hall Methodist Primary School will convert to become a Multi Academy Trust.  Together these schools will form the Acorn Trust. This trust comes under the Methodist Academy and Schools Trust (MAST). The Director of the Acorn Trust is Executive Headteacher Mrs Julie Ann Hewitt whose role is to provide strategic leadership which secures success and continuous improvement within both schools; ensuring high quality education for all pupils and the highest standards of learning and achievement.  Westleigh and Bedford Hall will continue to be individual schools but work alongside each other. 

Headteachers  Mrs Cathy Whalley (Westleigh) and Mrs Amy Burkes (Bedford Hall) lead each school on a day to day basis.
The Acorn Trust provides strong, collaborative links between both Methodist schools.

As an Academy, Westleigh Methodist benefits from greater freedoms to innovate and raise standards, allowing us to widen our personalised curriculum and continue to meet each child’s needs in a bespoke and creative way.

On the 6th of March 2015 me and Ceejay went with Mrs Whalley and Mrs Mulqueeney to Lowton High School to collect a PE award. We went in Mrs Whalley’s car to get there. When we first walked through the big doors I felt quite nervous because it was a big school. A pupil at the school showed us where to go. Mrs Mulqueeney and Mrs Whalley let us choose were we wanted to sit, we chose the front seats. There was a lot of different schools e.g. Bedford Methodist, Lowton West Primary, Hindley Green Primary and St Michaels. The lady that was running the assembly called out our names to come to the front. Our School got bronze and we are aiming to get silver next time.
