What the school offers its staff

Willand School

Willand School is a welcoming school with a strong ethos of care, respect, and purposeful learning. It is pleasantly situated in the village of Willand in the Culm Valley with a population of over 3,500 residents.

Willand School is a Group 3 Community School with 388 children on roll. The school has two form entry. We have a highly dedicated, professional team of staff. There are twenty-three teachers, including the Headteacher, together with twenty-four Teaching Assistants. The school has a Business Manager and three Administrative Officers.

The original building dates from 1948. The school has been extended in recent years. There are eleven classrooms in three extensions and three classrooms in the original building, all of which are interconnected. We are therefore fortunate to have modern, spacious accommodation to provide a stimulating learning environment for the children.

The school has a very hard-working and supportive Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) who organise a range of events during the year. They have provided a number of items of equipment in school. There is also a tradition of parental involvement, and many parents help in the school in a variety of ways.

Commitment to safeguarding

Willand School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All employees are expected to undergo Disclosure and Barring and employment checks. Online checks may also be undertaken of shortlisted candidates.
