Senior Management Team

The Senior Leadership Team (SLT) have key responsibility for the running of Westende Junior School. At Westende, we have a distributed management structure that provides a broader, more consultative and collaborative decision-making process. The SLT ensure best outcomes in pupil progress, attainment and pastoral well-being are achieved through shared responsibility, joint accountability and significantly increased lateral productivity. The SLT members are:

Mrs A Sykes, Head Teacher
Mr Matt Smith, Deputy Head
Mrs L Kitson, Assistant Head Teacher
Mrs C Churchill, School Business Manager
Mrs M Robinson, SENDCO


You are welcome to meet any member of the SLT and appointments can be booked via the school office. Please be advised that parents will usually be directed to meet with their class teacher first should they need to discuss any issue relating to their child.
