Willaston School

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

Updated bullying policy coming soon. Children just giving their views!!!!!! —Thanks to all parents who gave their views. Just capturing children's views. Will publish it here soon!!

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
