Loved your approach of a big. warm hug for the kids. I have seen many primary schools recently, and the Willow was by far the best.

However, we  just held our Information Morning which included a school tour with our year 5 children – the presentation is here; Information Morning presentation (10 November 2022)  

There is a timetable below, so select a date you can attend with your child/children and email us. Designed for the children, these 15minute tours will show you, the reception classrooms, playground and where they eat only - they must be booked by email in advance, 4 families at a time only for each tour (everyone is welcome, children, toddlers, babies, grandparents, all ground floor so pushchairs welcome etc).

 There are also 2 whole school tours for adults (no children, but babies in slings welcome), which will last approx. an hour, show you the whole school site with plenty of time to ask questions. The dates are; Thursday 17 November 2022 at 10am and Tuesday 10 January 2023 at 10am. Please book onto these tours by emailing to advise how many adults and babies are coming (no pushchairs, please as this group is large - max 15 adults).
