International Links

The Gambia, Africa.

We are delighted to have established an international link with the Albon Lower Basic School in The Gambia. Back in 2010 Mr Kimber, who was one of our Year 6 teachers, took a year out in The Gambia training teachers with VSO.

In February 2012, 2013 and 2014, he returned to visit The Albion Lower Basic School with a number of teachers and teaching assistants from Westdene. We have also hosted two visits from senior staff from our partner school who have led assemblies and talks at Westdene. Our children have forged pen-pals links as a result of this link.

Shanghai, China.

As part of a national NCETM project, Jenny Stratton visited schools in Shanghai, China to see mastery teaching strategies being used by specialist maths teachers in the country.

Then in January 2017, two teachers from Shanghai who were involved with the project visited Westdene for two weeks to teach children using their methods. Westdene was visited by delegates from all over Sussex, who came to see the visiting teachers in action.
