Dear Parents

 

At Willowcroft we aim to provide a caring, stimulating and healthy learning environment in which all pupils are given the opportunity to achieve their full potential.   We are proud of our reputation as an inclusive, friendly and welcoming school.

 

We strongly value our partnerships with parents and aspire to involve you in your child’s education and development. 

 

Willowcroft is run by a Board of Directors who work with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team to ensure that your children get the education they deserve. We set the school's strategic direction, policies, objectives and budget as well as challenging and supporting the Headteacher to raise standards.

 

All of the school's Directors are proud of the school, the teachers, support staff and the pupils, who make excellent progress while they are at the school.

 

The Directors attend parents evenings and many other school events so please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any concerns we can help with.
