Black History Week 14th to 18th October 2013
Every year in the month of October schools and other organisations celebrate Black History and this year our autumn enrichment week focused on developing an understanding of the continent of Africa and its legacy to the world. As we live in a city rich in cultural history, we made the best use possible of the stories of Black Bristolians and the influence they have had on the city and beyond. We want this kind of learning to go beyond Black History Month, and approach it instead as Our History rather than studying it as a segregated, once a year project.
Arts Week January 21-25, 2013
The school was alive with artists, dancers, dramatists and musicians as we launched into our 2013 Arts Week with the theme ‘The Four Elements’.
Throughout the week classes experienced activities from all areas of the Arts. We welcomed African dancers, Hip Hop and Capoiera teachers; printmakers, collage and acrylics artists; storytellers and musicians.
All the pictures, graphics, textiles and clay models went on show to parents at the Parent Meeting evenings in February.
Graffiti art produced by each Keystage 2 year group has gone on permanent display in the library.

Westbury Park is working with Sports Explosion to give all Keystage 2 children the opportunity to play in a range of competitive sports tournaments with schools across Bristol. We believe that engaging in competitive sporting activities is important to all children's development.
