About Us

Welcome to the Website
of Willow Primary School
(Part of Marish Academy Trust)

Everyone involved in our community here at Willow, knows that we are on a journey towards becoming an outstanding school. So naturally, we are committed to continually striving to improve the quality of Learning and Teaching and to raise standards of achievement for all pupils and families, to ensure that we exceed expectations.
But more than that, all schools within Marish Academy Trust aim to be welcoming places at the heart of their community, where children are taught to collaborate as a team, celebrate our cultural diversity and to value our different heritages as a rich resource, so that when they leave here they are able to make a positive contribution in whatever context or role they find themselves.
Here at Willow, we believe in opening and challenging young minds for a life time of learning. We do this by breaking through the ‘glass ceiling’ of average expectations and a focus on our three ‘diamond rules’:
  • Show good manners at all times,
  • Care for everyone and everything,
  • Follow instructions straightaway.
In all schools within Willow Academy Trust we expect everyone (children, parents, staff and governors) to always make the most of their opportunities and give of their best. We are mindful that all adults and some children in school are role models and have great influence and therefore a responsibility towards others.
If you are new to Willow, we hope you will join us and engage in the effort to take Willow towards outstanding, as it is only with the support of all stakeholders that we will achieve our aim.
