A huge thanks to FOWLS and all your support as we have been able to successfully begin changes in our school hall to improve our lighting and audio system! The work has started today and will be taking place over half term.
Watch this space for more details on the changes and the finished result.
Today ten of our children in Swindon and Savernake attended the official opening of Becks Mill Park.
We had such a lovely morning playing on the new play equipment and meeting the Mayor. The Mayor commented on how well behaved and lovely the children were, which was so lovely to hear.
Look out for us soon in White Horse News!
Hello my name is Owen. I’m the new performing arts ambassador for year three. I think I will be good at the role because when I did a plan for my Egyptian picture I did it very well. I like and singing and music, I like acting but I also like football.
Hello my name is Lucy. I am so proud to be a performing arts ambassador because I am good at art, and I think I can help others with art. I like singing because I am in the school choir. I used to do drama club and it made me more confident.
Hello my name is Jessica. I think everyone is good at art because everyone is different! I am good at supporting people. You should never give up on things on things you want to do!

Our School Kitchen Team, the ‘Love Leigh Diner’ run by catering manager, Helen Plows have continued to maintain their high standard and have been awarded the highest rating of 5 stars for hygiene by the Food Standards Agency. The Love Leigh Diner provides a wide range of hot and cold food, freshly prepared each day on the premises, our meals are very popular with both staff and pupils, especially the roast dinner on a Thursday!
The team take great pride not only in producing fantastic food, but doing so in the most professional way possible. It’s worth remembering that health, hygiene and safety are of paramount importance in public catering and it’s something that many customers take for granted – it’s good to know that the pupils and staff at Westbury Leigh C of E School can do just that!
Catering Manager, Helen Plows, said “We are delighted to have achieved the top rating again. It is reassuring for our pupils, staff and parents to know that we maintain the very highest of standards.”
Thank you to Helen and the team for all their hard work and for making Westbury Leigh School lunches so delicious!
Our Autumn Term is now in full swing, children have settled in beautifully and are already making every learning minute count! Our teachers have been busy over the summer planning an enriching and interesting curriculum to help the children progress with their skills. A child’s education relies on the partnership between school and home, so we welcome families in to share and support with this educational journey.
Year 5 immersed themselves in the Anglo Saxon era on our first week back, sporting traditional outfits whilst re-enacting the Battle of Ethandune with an Anglo-Saxon Warrior visiting our school! The whole year group showed off their incredible acting and performance skills as they threw themselves into every aspect of Anglo-Saxon Life!
Our new Reception pupils have begun their transition into the school and I can honestly say how wonderful it is to see all of their smiling faces, they have settled into school life exceptionally well and we are looking forward to continuing to watch them grow and develop into outstanding members of our community.
Clubs have begun this week and we hope the vast variety will spark the interest of all our pupils. There are still some spaces left in a couple of them, so speak to the office to sign up today!
This term we have welcomed Mr Pearce and Miss Warner to the team, and welcomed back Miss Eveleigh who has just come back off maternity leave.
Year 6 are holding a delicious bake sale this afternoon to raise money for Wiltshire Air Ambulance, cakes will be available on the Key Stage 1 playground straight after school, so come on down and donate for such a worthwhile cause.
Here’s to a fantastic term and great start to a new academic year!
