I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Willen Primary School website. I hope that this website will give you a flavour of life here and will encourage you to join us at Willen. At Willen Primary School, we aim to create a happy, secure and caring environment, where each individual is valued and respected. We seek to prepare our children for life in our contemporary world by providing opportunities for them to fulfil their potential through a stimulating, challenging and diverse curriculum. We believe that Willen is ‘a place where everyone flourishes’ and we aim to provide an environment where every child matters.
Our OFSTED inspection in January 2013 judged Willen to be ‘a good school where pupils achieve well, particularly in their speaking, listening, writing and basic number work.’
As a primary school, we keep literacy and numeracy as core features of our teaching; however, we place a great emphasis on the ‘whole’ child and provide a wide range of experiences for our children. In the last year we have experienced Saxon day, Greek day, Tudor day, cross country, sports day, music festivals, theatre productions and a visit to the pantomime, to name but a few!
As a school, we have a well developed extended school and 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 offer wrap around care for the school.
The best way to appreciate us is to visit. You will then experience firsthand our unique nature and see the advantages we offer our pupils. I hope to meet you soon. If you cannot find the answer to your query please send your question via the Contact section.
