We are delighted that you are interested in The Westwood Academy as a preferred choice for your child’s secondary education. I joined the Academy 9 years ago and I was appointed to the Headship of the school in 2015 because I have absolute faith in the education that this school offers. The Governors and I are sure that after reading this prospectus, attending our Open evening and visiting us at your convenience during the working day, you will share our belief.
Education Endowment Fund Grant – £5,000
Westwood is just one of four schools nationally to receive an Education Endowment Fund (EEF) research grant from their Innovation Evaluation fund in partnership with the Institute for Effective Education.
The grant awarders said “We really enjoyed reading your proposal about the use of live marking in science and would like to award a grant of £5,000 for this project,”
This is extremely exciting news and ensures that Westwood remain at the forefront of innovative educational assessment and further will facilitate future nationwide educational evaluation for marking and assessment.
The EEF is an independent grant-making charity dedicated to breaking the link between family income and educational achievement, ensuring that children and young people from all backgrounds can fulfil their potential and make the most of their talents.
Westwood would like to continue to work with the EEF and other educational providers on future research projects.
