The Willowbank Ethos Team work together to promote the Ethos and School Values within the school. Each class within the school has chosen their Ethos Team representative. The Ethos team for 2018-2019 will take part in the Federation Ethos days and lead prayers at the special services held at St Andrew's Church in Cullompton.
We are hoping to establish Reflection corners in each classroom for all children to access an area that they can leave a prayer or have some time to reflect on the school values. We are all very excited about our new Ethos Team and look forward to supporting our school community.

Rockbeare Ethos Morning
Rockbeare Primary School hosted an Ethos morning which four of the Ethos Committee members were able to attend with Mrs Shiach. The morning focused on the story of Noah and the children brought back artwork and their own lollipop ark that they had created as they thought about the story and what it means to children today. These are now on display to be shared with the rest of the school.
"I really enjoyed taking part in the Ethos morning, it was difficult making the ark but we persevered, worked together as a team and we are very proud of it" - Lydia
"It was good to meet children from other schools and work in groups with them" - Theo
Ethos Day at Chudleigh Knighton C of E Primary School
On Thursday 6th December four children from our Ethos Team participated in the Central Hub Ethos day at Chudleigh Knighton Primary School. They took part in a variety of activities linking to the history of St Nicholas across Europe. The children made paper lanterns, star ornaments, poinsettias and weaved stars from wool. They also enjoyed some tasty Christmas food treats from Germany. They enjoyed their time in Chudleigh Knighton and were looking forward to sharing their day with everyone back at Willowbank School.
