Inclusion Team

Westfield Primary School Inclusion Team

Our Inclusion Team brings together a wealth of experience and specialism to support the needs of our children. Team members work together with the school community to overcome barriers to learning and secure opportunities for success.

There are several ways in which you can contact us:

  • email on a confidential email account,,  which is checked by one member of the inclusion team throughout the day. 
  • telephone 01483 764187 and ask for a member of the inclusion team.
  • drop a note into our letter box (located outside the main office entrance) addressed to the inclusion team with your name and contact information.  A member of the inclusion team will contact you.
  • Children can use the “Bubbles” email address,, which is checked by a member of the inclusion team throughout the day.

We all aim to be as accessible as possible to parents and carers; but as we have  around 400 pupils at our school, we have to work on a priority needs basis and always put the needs of any children first. Wherever possible please book an appointment to see our Inclusion Leader initially.
