Willow Wood Community Primary School is proud to be recognised as a good school which delivers a high quality education for its pupils and families.

Please follow the link below for information about our school in the Department for Education performance tables.
Please be aware that as our school has a Resourced Provision for pupils with complex learning difficulties that the SATs results do not compare favourably with national results. For example in 2015, 22% of our Y6 pupils went on to special education and did not sit their SATs, so for our school 78% is the same as 100% in other schools. Our school is proud to be an inclusive school where all pupils thrive and achieve well. Please read our July 2015 OFSTED report and come and see us in action rather than judging the quality of the education we offer on our statistics.
If you would like any further information on aspects of school life please contact the Headteacher who would be delighted to show you around our lovely school.
