Welcome to the Widnes Academy website which we hope will give you an idea of the welcoming ethos that surrounds our school.
Pupils and staff are proud of our school which is at the very heart of the West Bank community.
Our recent Ofsted (January 2018) once again judged the school to be good in all areas, with a ‘strong culture of safeguarding’.
The inspection also highlighted that:
Parents and carers have very positive views and speak highly of the school and its work
All staff and governors are committed to improvement
Provision for pupils who have SEND is very effective
The curriculum has been developed and it ‘inspires pupils in the school who say they enjoy learning’
The quality of teaching is good and improving
Pupils are well cared for and nurtured
Pupils take pride in their work and have very positive attitudes to learning
Respect is evident in the relationships of all in the school
I am extremely proud to be the Principal of Widnes Academy West Bank. I believe passionately that our children deserve the very best education and that they are at the heart of everything that we do. They make us proud every day and together we can achieve anything!
In these difficult times, and as our school closes to most of our pupils until further notice, I would like to thank all our parents for their continuing support and understanding. It is at times like these that we realise what a wonderful community we have here in West Bank and I know we will continue to be there for each other in the days to come.
Do not forget that we are here if you need us. Stay safe and look after each other.
