Sheerness West Federation


Wellbeing Team


At West Minster School, the well-being of our children is of paramount importance. This includes their emotional well-being, as well as ensuring they are physically well-cared for. As part of this commitment to their care, we have a dedicated Wellbeing Team;

Mr Nigel Cates – Assistant Head of School / Inclusion Manager / Safeguarding

Mrs Claire Carter – Wellbeing Manager / FLO / Safeguarding

Mrs Jacci Fitch – Pastoral Support Worker

As a team we also work very closely with these other important people;

Mrs Sarah Samuel – SENCO

Mrs Kirsty Roberts – Attendance Officer

Sally Creavin –  Family Support Worker

Irene Montgomery – Inclusion Support

Allison Leigh – School Nurse

We believe that our school should provide a caring, positive safe and stimulating environment that promotes the social, physical and moral development of the individual child.

We are also here for families!  From time to time every family faces challenges, such as bereavement, changes in circumstances, behaviour issues, the list goes on!  Please do come and speak to us if you are finding things difficult or if you need some support.  We may not know all the answers but we will always be able to find someone that does.  After all, a problem shared is a problem halved!

Coffee and Chat

We hold a regular ‘coffee and chat’ on the first Friday of each month. Drop into The Beehive from 8.30-10am. All parents/carers are most welcome. Our monthly coffee mornings are a wonderful opportunity for parents/carers to get together, share ideas and challenges over a cup of coffee and some tasty treats. Jacci and Claire are also on hand to chat about issues relating to school. Sally and Allison often attend our coffee mornings allowing the opportunity for a more informal chat. Our next one is Friday 4th November  – hope to see you there!

Share a Story

Our popular Share A Story group will resume again soon! We are currently planning for how we can run these sessions in a new larger area somewhere in school…watch this space!
