Mrs Blades Leaving.

Sadly, after 12 years teaching at Saxton School, Mrs Blades will be leaving us at Christmas. She has touched the lives of many children during her time with us and is much loved. She will be greatly missed. Further information about teaching in Willow will be given next half term.

Bag2School Clothing Collection - 2nd November

We have arranged a clothing collection for 2nd November. Please bag up any unwanted clothing. October half term would be a good opportunity to clear out those cupboards! The bags can be dropped off at school week before 9am on Wednesday 2nd November (please don't bring them earlier as we have no where to store them). If you would like to find out more information about the scheme please click the link below. Children will be bringing bags home w/c 10th October but you can still use your own too.

School Lunches

After half term we will be on Week 2 of the New Autumn 2 lunches menu.


Children can decide daily whether they are having a school dinner or packed lunch.


On Friday, 4th November our cook will be making a special bonfire themed lunch. There is no need to pre-order, children can decide on the day if they would like it.


Please ensure you discuss the menu each day with your child so they can decide what they would like to order. Once they know their choices, they will choose this each morning with their teacher during registration.


Each day there are 4 choices, either the hot dinner, hot vegetarian option, jacket potato with a choice of toppings or a sandwich. The sandwich and jacket potato always come with a selection of vegetables/salad on the side and have the full pudding choice for that day.


Packed Lunches - if you are sending grapes in your child's packed lunch, can you please ensure that these are cut in half.
