Welcome to Willowbank Primary School
Thank you for visiting our website. We are constantly updating this website to provide you with useful information. Please do tell us what you think, we love to hear your feedback.
After the inspection report in December we received a monitoring visit from an H.M.I (Her Majesty’s Inspector) to review the progress the School has made since the inspection. The H.M.I visited last Wednesday and we are very pleased to report that she was very complimentary about the progress we have made. A copy of her letter can be found on the school website. The Inspector noted “You have wasted no time in setting the school on its path to be good or better”. This remains our key priority. She goes on to state “you are determined to improve the school at a rapid pace” noting also that ‘all staff and governors share in this commitment and drive’ She was complimentary about many aspects from teachers’ marking, work in books and the quality of teaching and children’s progress, especially in maths. Our Foundation stage was identified as improving well with “most children on track to make good progress”. The role and impact of governors was praised which is very encouraging as governors have worked hard to secure these improvements. The Local Authority agreed that “the report reads very well and gives us a good springboard for continued improvements” and all staff and governors remain fully committed this objective.
New Front Entrance & Office
Over the past 6 months we have been finalising plans with a local architect to build a new entrance and office to the school which will be located in the current walkway into school.
The new office build will commence week beginning 23rd March and over the Easter holidays to cause least disruption to the school although the builders may start their preparations from next week (16th March). The new office will be larger, better equipped and more up to date and will improve security having a 2 door system with restricted access.
