Positive behaviour, respect for others in the school and local community is a vital part of school life at Willowbank. It is one of the elements which make up the positive ethos of the school where our pupils are learning in a happy and purposeful environment. The need for acceptable standards of discipline is incorporated in pupils’ social education. Staff work extremely hard to develop excellent relationships with pupils. Good behaviour is encouraged and all pupils are supported by staff to display socially, appropriate, positive behaviours at all times. If a pupil is experiencing behaviour difficulties, parents are informed and are involved in planning strategies to reduce these behaviours. We see this as a good example of staff and parents working together for the benefit of the pupil.
Our school motto is “Be the Best You Can Be”. This is our inspiration and aspiration for all pupils, staff, parents, partners and visitors. We celebrate success and achievements daily, weekly and termly. This includes Head Teacher Award,reward system in class, Star of the Week and Well Done Certificate at assembly, termly Certificate for Achievements and Targets and Annual Prize Giving.
