We are a happy, oversubscribed, financially secure school. Our last OFSTED inspection in June 2016 was very positive and the school has made further strides since then. We are proud to be a local community school that gives all of our students the best possible start in life and nurtures them as effective learners and happy, productive 21st Century citizens. We are a truly inclusive and International multicultural school. Large numbers of our students come from homes with significant economic disadvantage, yet Willowfield is characterised by great relationships, and a real sense of community. A difficult start on the learning journey or challenging home circumstances are never seen as a reason for a child not to reach their full potential.
The school ethos and values are centred on developing our young people as great citizens and this infuses the whole curriculum and learning experience. We have strong partnerships with local schools and colleges and are involved in many community projects.
We are committed to the professional development of all staff at Willowfield and provide opportunities for all to develop within a true learning community and work as active partners within three teaching school Alliances
Candidates should note that as Willowfield is committed to Safer Recruitment practices and procedures, shortlisted applicants will be questioned about their commitment to the safeguarding and promotion of the welfare of young people.
