About Us

 

Westbury-on-Severn School is a Church of England Primary School for pupils  between the ages of 3 and 11 years of age. 

Most of the pupils come from the parishes of Westbury-on-Severn, Blaisdon and Flaxley and the surrounding villages. There is a school bus, which operates every day to enable the children who live in the outlying villages to attend this school.

The school is situated in the centre of Westbury-on-Severn village and seeks involvement with this community whenever possible. The school uses the church for its special services such as Easter and Harvest. We also participate in the Leavers' Service at Gloucester Cathedral every summer.

As an Aided School, we benefit from a very close partnership with the Church. Our children are guided in Christian values for life through the teaching and by the way we conduct our daily lives. These values are inclusive to those with a faith and none.

The Church not only has an interest in the educational and pastoral life of the school but also, through the Governing Body, is responsible for much of the upkeep of and improvements to our buildings.

The school has three large classrooms, with a smaller classroom for Preschool to meet when they are not in Forest School. The EYFS classroom has access to a small terraced area for outdoor play. We have a large, airy, high ceilinged modern hall where we meet for Worship, eat lunch together, play music and have indoor PE lessons. We have 2 rooms set aside for ELSA (our Pastoral Care approach). Upstairs we have a small library next to the staff room. 

Outside, we are blessed with a good sized playground and, on dryer days, we open up the garden area, which has a trim trail and seating for outdoor lunchtimes. Beyond this we have a Forest School Area, which has mature trees and a pond. 

Work is currently underway on our new school field, since we will be losing part of our current field because of the extension to the cemetery. However, our football pitch will be unaffected.
