Our Academy

Welcome to the website of Willow Green Academy. We encourage you to explore our pages, learn how we learn and discover some of the exciting moments created by our dedicated team and the amazing children we have the pleasure of working with each day.

Located in Ferrybridge, in the heart of Yorkshire, we are a primary academy entrusted with being the centre of learning for over two-hundred children who range in age from Nursery to Year 6. Each year group is home to a single class which you can take a glimpse into via the 'Classes' tab at the top of the page - each class also has access to our Twitter account to showcase learning and keep families up to date and engaged with Willow Green life! Find us on Twitter using the name @WillowGreenAcad

The building itself is modern in design and flooded with natural light, making our learning environments bright and vibrant places to be. It is a beautiful place for children to learn and never fails to impress visitors to our school. 

We have high expectations of all our children and we model this by having high expectations of ourselves. Each and every person who steps through the door at Willow Green is treated respectfully and given the absolute best opportunities possible to realise their potential and become the greatest version of themselves they can be.

Willow Green Academy Vision

 

We are a safe, warm and friendly community of people, working closely together to create excellence in learning; create excellence through opportunity and inspire excellence in each other.

Every person, who walks through the doors of Willow Green, is welcomed and treated with respect by all. We encourage dreams and aspirations by celebrating each persons own individual skills and strengths. We acknowledge our failures and learn from them – failure is not a weakness, it is a stepping stone to success and should not be ignored.

 

“Every child has the best and safest educational experience” – this is the basis of every decision we make about the academy as a whole and for each child.

 We work as adults and children to:

 

Learn by receiving excellent and consistent teaching

Be known, included, valued and heard.

Behave impeccably and develop ‘habits of excellence’.
