Headteacher's Welcome

Here at The Willows, it is our aim to ensure that all children feel happy, safe in school and able to learn. We want them to thrive and develop confidence in themselves and their abilities. Our curriculum gives all children the opportunities, experiences and support to enable them to develop the key knowledge and skills needed in order to be successful at secondary school and later life.

Our school is a very happy, vibrant and busy place. Our pupils enjoy coming to school and benefit greatly from the many exciting learning opportunities they are given. The dedicated staff team places a strong emphasis on creating a safe, well-resourced and attractive environment in which all children can learn.

The Willows Primary School is a community school and encourages parents, carers and family members to support learning as well as school events.

I hope some of the information on our school website will help you to decide whether our school is the right environment for your child. However, if you still have unanswered questions please just get in touch and we will be happy to answer them or alternatively contact us to book a school visit. It will be our pleasure to show you around.

Yours sincerely,
Miss MacArthur (Headteacher)

Chair of Governor's Welcome

Dear Parents and Carers,
On behalf of the Governors I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to The Willows Primary School.

As a Governing Board we are proud of our children and our warm, nurturing and dynamic school. The Governing Board work hard to support the headteacher, teaching staff and pupils with the aim of ensuring The Willows School is the best it can be.

The role of the Governing Board is to ensure the schools statutory obligations are met in addition to reviewing and monitoring objectives, planning for the future, and to make sure the vision for the school is both challenging and realistic. It is the responsibility of the headteacher to run the school, however, it is the role of the Governing Board to support and strengthen the headteacher’s leadership, and to hold her accountable for the performance of children and staff.

All our Governors bring with them a range of different skills and experiences to enhance the leadership and management of the school within a great community. Decisions are taken by the whole Governing Board which meets once a month and these follow a meetings schedule to consider the more specific areas of staffing, curriculum and finance. We feel extremely privileged to be part of the life of our successful and vibrant school and appreciate the active and enthusiastic role Willows parents play, both in the development and growth of the children, and through the fundraising activities of PTFA.

Kate Parietti (Chair of Governors)
