Ethos and Values

We are a friendly, vibrant two form entry primary academy in Bessacarr, Doncaster with 400 children aged 4 to 11. 

At Willow Academy our aim is to foster a love of learning and develop enquiring minds; enable all our children to overcome barriers and reach their full potential; ensure that our children value themselves as unique individuals, celebrating diversity and respecting differences and to work together as a community to enable all our children to develop as responsible citizens.

Our values are evident in and promoted through our school curriculum and our school core values:

At Willow we expect our children to ASPIRE to be:

  • Achieving
  • Self-motivated
  • Positive
  • Independent
  • Respectful
  • Engaged 


Education is a partnership between home and school and we place a great deal of emphasis on our partnership with parents and the community. 

We believe that children learn best when home and school work together. 

If you would like any more information about the academy, or to arrange a visit, please contact us. I look forward to meeting you.

We have relaunched our Behaviour and Rewards approach in January 2017, follow this link to find out more...
