Willowbank School is a community in which children learn to live alongside each other. We aim to develop the right values and attitudes within a caring, secure and happy environment.

For the school to operate effectively we believe our work should build upon foundations established at home and develop into a close partnership between home and school. To provide a broad and varied range of opportunities for your child to achieve success is an underlying principle of the school. We want children to develop a positive attitude to learning so that each child strives to achieve the highest possible standards and a definite sense of purpose and value.

HeadteacherWe extend a warm welcome to you and your family and hope that your association with our school will be a happy one. If you would like to visit and look around please do not hesitate to telephone and make an appointment. I will always be pleased to see you.

Mr Simon Atherton
Head Teacher



School Aims

We care very much about the interests, needs and aptitudes of each individual child, to ensure equa lity of access and opportunity, with commitment towards the achievement of high standards. Therefore, our aim is to enable each child to achieve their true potential, to recognise their own personal targets and to take pride in that achievement, while taking pleasure in the achievement of others.

We will provide opportunities for all of our children to grow in confidence and independence and
to know the value of co-operation. This is developed further by our School Council, which play an important role in supporting children’s initiative, taking responsibility and developing their knowledge of community.

We encourage our children to develop an active interest in school life, by providing a wide range of opportunities for study support and extra curricular activities.

We view our school as an active part of the community, where pupil and parent satisfaction is of paramount importance. We welcome parents and other members of the community who come to see us, whether to share a concern or to offer help. Parents are provided with quality information on a weekly basis, in the form of our newsletter; the Willowbank Weekly. Also, the local press is kept informed about events which are taking place.

Our children will be taught to care for and respect themselves, others, their school and the environment. We use P.S.H.E and Citizenship to encourage and promote the worth of constructive relationships. Throughout their daily participation in school we will endeavour to teach our children to be tolerant, sympathetic and to recognise the appropriateness of their behaviour, giving the children the opportunity to reflect on their experiences.
