“Developing aspiration in our children” – Council’s education chief pays tribute to Willoughby’s ‘outstanding’ school

Willoughby School is one of the elite group of the county’s schools to have been assessed by Ofsted as ‘outstanding’. 

Willoughby School’s headteacher, Alan Guilder, and the chair of the school’s governing board, Adrian Bath, were invited to a reception on 7th November at County Hall to celebrate Nottinghamshire’s outstanding schools.

The reception was hosted by Councillor Philip Owen, chair of the county council’s children and young people’s committee, who commended the headteachers and their staff for ensuring that children secure the essential skills needed to allow them to achieve their potential.

Mr Guilder comments

“At Willoughby Primary, we are delighted to be recognised by Ofsted as an outstanding school.  We aim to provide ‘learning for life’, in a friendly, caring, family environment.

We have a vision for our school which strives to sustain and develop further our outstanding achievements.  To remain outstanding means a commitment to promote the highest standards of teaching and learning and to help every child to reach their potential in their progress and attainment.

As a small, rural primary school, we are blessed to be able to ensure our focus remains firmly on every child as a unique individual.”
