Virtual Open Day
Welcome to our Virtual Open Day 2020. This selection of videos will give you an insight in to what it feels like to be a child learning in our Good school which serves the community of Lancaster. Whilst all schools offer an education, every school has a different ethos, different facilities, a different curriculum and different staff and choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. When visiting schools, it is best to see if you can imagine your child enjoying and learning in the environment you see before you. We recognise that in these times this is challenging and hope this virtual approach gives you a flavour of what learning at Willow Lane Community Primary School is like.
As well as watching these videos, there are other sources of information you will want to consider:
- Our recent Good Ofsted report which really highlights the curriculum that children enjoy in our school. https://www.willow.lancs.sch.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/10135071-Willow-Lane-Community-Primary-School-119134-Final-PDF.pdf
- The Government’s Compare Schools website which gives you an overview of how well our children perform academically. Just enter ‘Willow Lane’ in the search and follow the link. https://www.gov.uk/school-performance-tables
- Visit our school blog at https://www.willow.lancs.sch.uk/noticeboard/school-blog/ This gives you further insight in to how our happy and enthusiastic children learn across the curriculum.
- The views of current parents and members of the community. Everyone’s experience of a school is unique but through talking to other parents you will get a good idea on the type of school you are choosing.
When you have made your decisions about choosing a school, you will need to apply online at https://www.lancashire.gov.uk/children-education-families/schools/apply-for-a-school-place/starting-primary-school/ by the national deadline of Friday 16th January. Whichever schools you choose, please don’t miss this date as whilst your child will be allocated a school place, it may well be far away especially if you want your child to attend an oversubscribed school such as ours.
If you have any questions, please do email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will be able to respond to your questions. I will also use the questions raised to compile a ‘Question and Answer’ sheet to share with other prospective parents.
Thank you for considering our school for your child,
