Welcome to Our School

General Update (08/04/20)

Since the list has become very long, I've added a Home Learning page with links to resources for many different subjects. Please pick out anything you like the look of or that looks suitable for your children.

Additionally, keep your eye on the class pages for some information from teachers while school is closed.

*** Update Wednesday 1st April ***
Dear Parents and Carers, 
Firstly, I hope you and your family are keeping safe and well. I urge everyone to continue to follow the Government guidance by staying at home wherever possible and only using the school childcare when you need to. 
The Government have announced they have set a scheme for children who normally claim free school meals. Once this has been set up, we will contact you if you are eligible and with instructions on how to claim. Please bear with us.
The Government are also finalising details regarding the Easter Break. If school is open, it will only be open to critical workers and not on Good Friday or Easter Monday. If you believe that you are a critical worker and will need childcare over the Easter break, please contact the school so that we can plan staff accordingly. 
Once I have any further details on critical workers, I will update the website with the details. 
We are still operating a reduced office at the minute so please leave a message on the school answering machine and we will get back to you. 
As always, thank you for your support during this critical time. 
Keep safe, 

Further Update From St Helens Borough (25/03/20)

If you are currently sending your child to school per eligibility guidelines, it is important to read this letter from St Helens Council re: school places. We currently don't have any further information than this, but we will let you know any updates as soon as we know them. 


Coronavirus Update (20/03/20)

School will be closed to the majority of children from Monday. It will be open to children of key workers only, and only where there is no possibility for the child of a key worker to remain at home. Government advice is still for these parents to only send in their children where necessary.

Here is a document showing what the government defines as key workers: Key Workers

During this time, the school office is operating on reduced hours - please leave a message and we can get back to you.

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. If you are looking for something in particular and are unable to find it, please don`t hesitate to contact the school and we will be happy to answer your questions.
