Welcome to The Willows School and Early Years Centre. Let me start by saying that I have the unique privilage of being the Headteacher of this amazing school and everyday I get to work with dedicated staff, children, families and Governors. We consider ourselves to be in a fortunate position working within such a diverse community alongside many inspiring people. I do hope that you find our website informative and useful.
We are an excellent infant school providing care and education for children aged 2 to 7 years old. We work closely with Pebbles Children’s Centre and other agencies. We are a friendly, nurturing school and aim to work in partnership with parents and carers to provide an excellent education in a secure, stimulating environment. We offer an exciting and creative curriculum where the children have fun and become passionate learners. We are dedicated to offering a broad curriculum which includes as many real life experiences as possible.
We hope that your children will be very happy with us and we understand that every child is unique. We look carefully at all their individual needs as soon as they begin their Learning Journey with us. We have a large and experienced staff team who not only educate but also nurture and care for your children. The staff and Governors are committed to both the children and families and truly believe that together we can make a difference to the whole community. Visits are warmly welcomed, please ring or come to the school office to make an appointment.
We do have a wrap around which extends the school day from 8.00am until 6.00pm. Please see the information about breakfast club and 3-2-6 clubs for how to book and costings.
