Goodbye Mrs Smith

It is with mixed emotions that we announce the retirement of Cheryl Smith who has been Head Teacher of Western for the past sixteen years. Under her inspiring and thoughtful leadership, Western has developed as a thriving community which extends far beyond the boundaries of the school’s grounds. Western is a happy, vibrant and exciting place to learn with a warm and welcoming atmosphere which is commented on by everyone who visits this remarkable school.

Over the years, Cheryl has worked with a calm determination, overcoming many challenges, to build a school which was recognised as outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in June 2018. But more than this, Cheryl has created a genuine community of learners, which everyone – children, staff and parents -are proud and privileged to be a part of. Cheryl will be sadly missed but is leaving behind a school which is exceptionally well placed to move forward in the educational landscape and continue to be an innovative, dynamic and happy place to learn. We wish her a very happy and fulfilling retirement – she has certainly earned it.

From all your colleagues and friends in the Western Community.
