Westmeads is an local education authority maintained infant school, which sits at the heart of the community that it serves.
The children join Westmeads in the academic year that they are 5 years old, and leave us to move to one of Whitstable's Junior Schools or another school of parents' choice in the September following their 7th birthday.
We have six classes; two Year 2 classes, two Year 1 classes and two Reception (EYFS) classes.
School Day timings
School starts promptly at 9.00am but gates open at 8:50am. School finishes at 3:30pm.
The children have a morning break before which they are able to help themselves to fresh fruit, water and milk. However, all children have access to water during the day and are encouraged to drink regularly.
Lunchtime starts at 12pm and finishes at 1pm for Reception and Year 1. Year 2 take lunch from 12:15 until 1:15pm. Lunch is cooked by our own team on the premises.
The school's extended services include 7.30am to 6.00pm wrap-around care in respect of breakfast and after school clubs; 3+club for prospective pupils; drop-in information and support from our Inclusion Co-ordinator and Well-being team; opportunities for family learning; as well as a variety of after school clubs run by school staff and outside organisations.
