About Morecambe and Heysham Westgate Primary School

Westgate is very large 600+ pupil mainstream primary school serving the community in Morecambe. The pupils are at the centre of everything we do with a committed, experienced and hard-working staff base meeting the needs of the children we are responsible for. The ideal candidate will be someone who is child-centred, compassionate and resilient. We are looking for individuals who can truly support children and be part of a team that make a positive and life-long difference.

We have an excellent record in terms of supporting the development of teachers and we hold our staff in very high regard, they are our most valuable resource and so we take time to nurture and value them. Staff enjoy coming to work and give 100% to both children and colleagues. We all work hard here and our efforts are rewarded with the satisfaction gained from seeing youngsters move on with their learning. The school population comes from a range of backgrounds, free meals entitlement is 29% and many have difficulties outside school. We have a strong inclusion team to support our work with these particular children.
You would join us at an exciting time as we explore how to provide a curriculum rich with experiences secured through place-based learning as a lead primary school developing the Morecambe Bay Curriculum in partnership with the Eden Project North.
