Westfield’s very own branch of HSBC UK bank was officially opened last week by Branch Manager, Towheed and his staff.
Each week HSBC UK operates from the school library for an hour for pupils to open their own saving accounts, deposit money and even apply for a debit card. They are offered advice and help on how to manage their money. Former Westfield pupil Syed Uddin and Chloe Grix, Universal Bankers
from HSBC UK’s Bedford branch, have worked with the school
to put the bank in place. Pupils were invited to apply for different
positions within the school bank and applicants underwent a
proper interview process. “We were incredibly impressed with the
lengths that the pupils went to in both their applications and their
interviews” said Syed Uddin. “They dressed in suits and came very well prepared with lots of information and questions. The standard was incredibly high.” Eight pupils were selected for roles, which include a Branch Manager, Assistant Manager, Universal Bankers and Cashiers - pictured right.
We have had an exciting start to 2018 with some excellent results.

Attendance and Punctuality
Please remember that your child needs to be on the school playground by 8.20am. They should not be on school premises before this unless they have a club as they will not be supervised. Please can you drop off your child at the school gates leading to the playground.
Children should not be dropped off at the front office. We are aware that children are ill on occasions but we would appreciate your support in encouraging your child to come to school if this is a mild illness such as a cold.
If your child is unwell please telephone the school office on 01234 267353 before 9am.
Children who get the minibus
If you need to contact Mr Powell please call 07542 943819.
A great time was had by all when we held our Westfield Bake Off recently in aid of our chosen charity for this year the RSPCA.
The amazing bakes managed to raise £163 which puts us well on the way to reaching our £1000 target for the year.
Well done and thank you to everyone who took part.
