Letter from Executive Headteacher & Headteacher
At the close of a very challenging year, we were just wondering what to write to you all in our end of term letter, when I received an email to say that our Willow Ofsted report had been published.
It states that Willow is ‘more than a school’ and that ‘we work tirelessly to understand the needs of our pupils and their families.‘ The same is true of Marish.
A little while later, we received an email from a parent of a year 6 leaver which said the following:
‘Good teachers do not expect children to learn the way they teach; they teach the way the children learn. This is exactly why Marish is so special and well done for that.‘ The same is true of Willow
Resilience is a quality we aspire to develop in all our children, so after such a year, perhaps it is fitting that the last word comes from a resilient child. This young man, also a year 6 leaver, commented recently that: ‘I will never give up because I know I have to believe in myself.’
We have always been very proud of Marish and Willow, but never before have we felt quite so honoured to be a part of this amazing, resilient community. Thank you for all you have contributed to our partnership this year. Wishing you a wonderful summer filled with rest and refreshment.
Mrs Denham and Miss Court
