Willaston School

Come to the edge... where all children are 'free range'

At Willaston school we believe that in order to raise aspirations and expectations we need to :-

* expect the best from ourselves and others

* have high standards in behaviour, appearance, presentation, environment

*challenge children and take them to the edge of their capabilities, and in doing so encourage children to challenge themselves

* enable children to learn independently, applying skills they have learnt

* be brave enough and informed enough to take considered risks

* be engaged enough to question

* inform and engage parents in the learning taking place

* provide opportunities for parents to further their own learning
