Willowdown Primary


Vision and Values

At Willowdown Primary we live and work together as a community to create Happy Children, Successful Learners and Confident Individuals. All members of the school community are valued as individuals, supported and challenged to perform as well as they possibly can in all areas.

Our values are important to us and guide the decisions we make to improve standards at Willowdown further:

Love, Enthusiasm, Achievement, Respect and Nurture (LEARN):

Love:  We will learn to love learning, ourselves and each other 

Enthusiasm: We will learn to show enthusiasm for learning: we will work and play hard, fair and safe 

Achievement: We will learn to celebrate our academic and personal achievements, and those of our friends 

Respect: We will learn to respect ourselves, our Academy, friends, families and communities 

Nurture: We will learn that our Academy and families are working to nurture us to enable us to be accepted and valuable members of our communities.

Our visions and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.


At Willowdown, we have 3 expectations. These sit alongside our values and we expect all stakeholders: children, staff, governors and parents to follow these expectations in all they do. These are:

  • Being Safe
  • Being Ready
  • Being Respectful
