We are catering for 96 pupils with a range of learning difficulties or physical disabilities which mean they cannot use the facilities available in mainstream schools.
Over the past 10 years, Westhaven has expanded to include a horticulture department, new play areas, and computers, but unlike other schools, it still lacks a dedicated sports hall, despite catering for pupils of secondary school age.
Instead, a single hall is used to accommodate its pupils for PE, assemblies and lunch, too. Our changing rooms are not large enough to accommodate the students who use it each PE lesson. The school already has a number of supporters who will contribute towards the project, as well as pledges from construction firms to carry out some of the work. But additional funds are needed, and PE staff and headteacher Tracy Towler are appealing for people from Weston and the surrounding area to help make the dream a reality.
