Community Links

Westfield plays an important role in a wide web of links and partnerships throughout the UK and abroad. We are central members of the Teaching Alliance of Dorset Special Schools (TADSS) and we are members of the Chesil Education Partnership, a grouping of the 28 schools of Weymouth and Portland. We work throughout the south west in collaboration with the South and West Association of Leaders in Special Schools (SWALSS) –

Further afield we have enjoyed supportive partnerships with schools in the east end of London as we prepared for playing our part in the 2012 Olympic Games and we have a very well established relationship with Kairuni School in Kenya. Joint visits between the schools and shared curriculum work have shown us all that we can learn so much by working together.
