Goodbye (for now) Miss Thompson and Good Luck 10th Feb 2017 

We bid Miss Thompson a fond 'see you soon' as she goes on to Maternity leave. She will be back with us later in the year. We wish her lots of luck and we cant wait to meet her little baby boy when he arrives!


Famous Early Years Visitor to Willowdown! 7/10/16

Mrs Curtis' friend, Shonette Bason-Wood, came to host an Early Years Training Event at our school for staff and teachers across the local area. She came and said hello to Mercury children too! She has been the inspiration of our daily 'dough disco', 'squiggle sessions' and 'Rap to Read' fun!

The children were very excited that she was at our school as they had been watching her on the whiteboard showing them how to squiggle!



Parents Evenings are being held 14/11-15/11/2016. Book online for a 10 minute appointment.
