Update Monday 25th January - Staff Testing


Dear Parents and Carers,


I hope you are all keeping well.  From today, staff are able to test themselves twice a week if they wish to do so as part of the Government's drive to find people who may be carrying Covid-19 without displaying any symptoms.  All staff will be testing themselves before coming to work.  If, after a thorough risk assessment, we are not able to staff a bubble because of positive cases, the class bubble will close.  This is only in the event of positive cases amongst staff and would result in a bubble closure anyway.  However, it may be incredibly short notice if we have to close a bubble in this situation.  I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause at short notice.


Kind Regards,


Mr Perkins

Dear Parents and Carers,


I hope you are keeping well.  I have attached a letter from two Directors in St Helens concerning the rising rates of Coronavirus across the Mersey City Region and the need to only send children to school (Key worker) if absolutely needed.


If you have any questions, please ring or email the office.


Kind regards,


Mr Perkins

Update Friday 8th January 2020


Dear Parents and Carers,


I hope you are keeping well.  I have attached the usual Friday weekly newsletter below.  Unless there are any significant developments during the week, I will be now be updating you via the newsletter every Friday during lockdown.  It has been fantastic to see and hear about so much interaction with our our remote Learning.  Despite Gavin Williamson (Education Secretary) announcement on Wednesday, I would ask that you contact your child's teacher first if you wish to ask/query/concerns about the Jotter Learn and, if you remain unhappy, follow it up with myself.


Stay safe,


With warm wishes,


Mr Perkins




FAQs - Version 1 



















On behalf of the staff and children here at Willow Tree Primary School, I would like to welcome you to our school and thank you for visiting our website.  At Willow Tree, we pride ourselves on our warm and friendly atmosphere and hope that new parents and children will quickly feel part of our school family.  It has been a privilege to be appointed as Headteacher of such a fantastic school and I look forward to working with you all over the coming months and years.

Our high expectations match the high quality teaching and pastoral care our children receive, regardless of their starting points or abilities. This guarantees that they have a great beginning to their learning journey at our school.It is important to us that the children are happy, confident and resilient and enjoy their learning, making the most of all the opportunities we have to offer. We ensure that all learning is purposeful and linked to children`s own experiences so they are engaged, challenged and become highly effective problem solvers and communicators.

Our curriculum is creative, inclusive and exciting. It provides children with a broad range of learning experiences which seek to nurture talents and acquire new skills in a hands-on and engaging way. It is our aim for all children to have a deeper understanding of the world around them and to become responsible and caring citizens of the future.

We hope that during their time with us your children will become confident, articulate, and inquisitive and endeavour to work in partnership with parents to achieve the very best provision for every individual.

I hope that you enjoy reading about what we have to offer. We have a latest news section towards the bottom of this page it's worth checking for updates as often as you can. We also have a Facebook and Twitter showing off what we do in school!
