At The Willows we are all on a journey to become successful learners, with curious children and dedicated staff all striving to be the very best they can be. Working at the heart of the community, we are also seeking to bring opportunities for learning to parents and families so we can work in partnership to support our children. Placing the children at the heart of all we do here at The Willows, means we are constantly looking for new and exciting opportunities to enhance the learning and research that supports the approaches we take. This is evident as we continue to build a curriculum that not only challenges but also inspires the children, placing experiences and creativity at the centre of their learning experience. A curriculum that also values the development of positive attitudes, social skills and service to others, creating resilient and tolerant citizens who want to change their world for the better. Alongside our high expectations of how the children can behave and what they can achieve academically; it is also our mission to ensure that The Willows is filled with the magic of childhood where a ‘wow’ moment is never far away. If you would like to know more about our school and the journey of improvement that we are currently on please do not hesitate to contact our friendly office team who will be pleased to help. We look forward to meeting you soon and sharing a little more of our wonderful world with you.
