Willoughby Primary School has been rated as “Outstanding” by OFSTED Inspectors and is amongst the top performing Primary Schools in the County. In 2015, Willoughby was ranked number 1 in the Primary Schools League tables for Nottinghamshire. We also have a 100% success rate for pupils who take entrance exams for independent schools in the area.
We pride ourselves on the fact that our school is a happy school with a friendly, family atmosphere. we positively encourage the children to respect and care for each other. Small class sizes for much of the day ensure that children’s individual needs are catered for. We are confident that your child will both enjoy and benefit from his/her education at Willoughby School.
Our School Sessions are from 9.00 am to 12.00 and from 1.00 pm to 3.30 pm. The teaching staff assumes responsibility for the children ten minutes before and after each school session. Midday supervisors are present over the lunch period to assist with our children’s welfare.
The school has good facilities, including three classrooms, one of which is a well resourced ICT area for the pupils. All classes have use of interactive whiteboards, which were installed as part of our ICT Vision plan.
Our excellent school meals are cooked at Keyworth Primary and Nursery School. Weekly menus are available for children to choose from. Children who bring sandwiches to school, eat with the rest of the school. In line with statutory requirements we provide free school meals to all children in Reception and Key Stage 1.
We use the Village Hall for a wide range of activities, which include movement, drama, gymnastics and indoor games; we are also very lucky to enjoy full use of the wonderful Willoughby Community Park (a short walk away), which is used for sporting activities and as a recreational facility in fine weather.
We have a text messaging service, which we operate from school. We use this to remind parents/carers of events, or to flag up any important notices.
At the end of Year 6, our children either transfer to South Wolds Community School or go on to one of the several excellent independent schools in the area.
