Welcome to Team Willow


Meet the staff

Mrs Hadfield                      Miss Pillinger                          Mrs Woodhouse


Welcome to Team Willow and the beginning of your journey through school. 

The Early Years curriculum is designed to develop all aspects of the child and in Team Willow we strive to make sure this is as fun and creative as possible. We want children to develop a love of learning so we ensure our learning environment is inviting and engaging for all our children. We work closely with our parallel class to ensure the curriculum, provision and teaching enable all children to be challenged at their individual level and therefore thrive

The relationships between ourselves and our families are an integral component for a successful and effective start to your child’s school journey. We work hard to build these strong relationships and look forward to getting to know you all. 

In Team Willow we celebrate and value every member of our class and look forward to seeing each individual child flourish into the best they can be.

‘The expert in anything was once a beginner.
