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.
