Westcliff Primary Academy

Westcliff Primary Academy is a single form entry primary school located in Bispham, Blackpool. In September 2013 we expanded to incorporate a new two form entry site called Blackpool Gateway Academy.

On the 1st of September 2011, we were granted Academy status, the first school in Blackpool to achieve this. Also in 2011, we were awarded National Support School status by the National College of School Leadership as recognition of our outstanding practice and the support given to other local schools by our staff.

We work closely with parents and pupils to ensure that we take into account the child’s own views and aspirations and the parents’ experience of, and hopes for, their child.  This may mean additional meetings in school with class teachers and the SENDCo, as well as the termly review meetings and parents evenings. 

All pupils benefit from ‘Quality First Teaching’: this means that teachers expect to assess, plan and teach all pupils at the level which allows them to make progress with their learning. ‘Every teacher is a teacher of every child including those with SEN.’ In addition, we implement some focused interventions to target particular needs and skills. 

We have high expectations of all our pupils. Pupils on our SEN register make progress that compares well with the progress made by other pupils in school.
