Welcome to Willowdown Primary

Hello! A letter from Ro O'Reilly, Head teacher

The history of Willowdown Primary...

Willowdown Primary opened at the beginning of September 2014 in a stunning new, purpose built building on the Kings Down development. We have now reached the stage in our expansion where we now have two Reception classes , two year one classes and one class for each year group right up to year 6, as well an onsite Nursery. Our school (part of the Clevedon Learning Trust) plays an active role in the Bridgwater community, by supporting families and working with other local organisations to provide a truly outstanding learning experience. The school's aim is to develop resilient children and successful learners so that they can move along their learning pathway as happy and confident individuals.


We have a fantastic leadership team and staff who work together to ensure that pupils are equipped for a successful future outside of Willowdown Primary. Our pupils will gain competence in basic skills, understand the wider world and they will be helped to develop their own set of personal skills. 


Pupils are supported to develop interests, knowledge and understanding across all curriculum subjects. We will put a great emphasis on experiential learning, layered from Nursery to Year 6.


Willowdown Primary works in partnership with parents and carers to provide the best education for our pupils. Each family has the support of all staff, plus extra support available from our PFSA if needed. Whenever we can, we will offer information and support in helping with home learning, parenting and online safety to name but a few.

Please note, if you would like any information from this website in paper copy, please contact the office staff on and we will endeavour to get these to you as soon as possible. Please also note, there may be a small charge.
