Welcome to our Willen Primary School website. We hope that this website will give you an idea of life here at Willen Primary School and will encourage you to join us.
We are a values led school and we work tirelessly to create a learning-centered, happy, secure and caring environment. This is a school where each individual is valued and respected. We prepare children for life in a modern world by providing opportunities where children can thrive and grow. We pride ourselves on offering a stimulating, challenging and diverse curriculum where children of all abilities are able to make fantastic progress. We believe that Willen is ‘A Place Where Everyone Flourishes’ so we have adopted this as our school motto.
As a primary school, we keep English and maths as core features of our teaching however, we place a great emphasis on developing the ‘whole’ child. To do this we provide a wide range of experiences for our children.
We have a dedicated and active WSA (our parents' association). With their support we have extended our facilities for outdoor learning and redeveloped the school libraries. The children are continually making excellent use of the new resources.
As a school we have a well developed 'extended school' and we offer a wide range of extra-curricular clubs and activities. This is enhanced by our collaboration with seven schools through the ASPIRE learning partnership. Kidsplay (our on-site wrap around care) offer a breakfast club and after-school provision.
We have just had (Summer 2016) an extensive internal renovation. The best way to appreciate our 'new-look' school is to visit and take a tour. You will then experience first hand our wonderful environment and see the advantages we offer our pupils. Please contact the school office where Mrs Warner or Mrs Hodson will be able to help.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Mr M Talbot (Executive Headteacher) and Mrs C Biddell (Head of School)
