Welcome to the Willows Primary School
The aim of our inclusion team is to work alongside children and their families to ensure that children are given the support they need to be in school, happy and learning.
The school prides itself on delivering a creative curriculum so that the children can learn with real-life activities. Pupils are taught both indoor and outdoor activities and these are linked to literacy and numeracy. Where possible staff enrich learning by inviting visitors into the classrooms and by planning well-linked trips to match both the schools development focuses and learning.
Our Outside Learning is supported by The Forest School. The children learn new skills such as cooking on fires, fire and knife safety and working with a range of natural materials, particularly willow which they harvest from our own site. Willow and Elder have been planted in the forest area to enable a sustainable resource for the children’s learning. The school also has an allotment with a recycled bottle green house and a thriving pond area which is used for science lessons.
We promote music and drama which builds the pupils’ confidence. All pupils from Year 4 to Year 6 learn a brass instrument and we have recently taken part in the highly-respected schools’ music celebrations at Snape Maltings. This unique, memorable experience was to commemorate the music of Benjamin Britton this year.
We are all very proud of The Willows. We have high expectations of all pupils and know that every child has a right to an excellent education.
