Kempsey Primary School

To learn with respect and belief; to challenge, create and dream!


Welcome to Willow!

The willow tree symbolises fulfilling wishes of the heart, learning from the past, inner vision and dreams. It symbolises inner wisdom and an open mind with the stability and strength of age and experience.

Like the tree which gives the class its name, we hope that the children in Willow Class will realise their dreams this year. For some of the pupils in this class, it will be their final year at KPS and we hope that they will be good role models for the younger pupils in our school. Willow Class is a mixed Year 5 and 6 class. It is taught by Mr David Willetts, Mrs Sally Drinkwater and Mrs Annie Guyatt.

Final Thank You


I would just like to say a GREAT BIG thank you to all of the wonderful children in Year 5. It has been a year full of many happy memories and one that I shall never forget! We have worked hard and produced some really good work; the children have risen to challenges and persevered when it has been tough. Well done.


Thank you parents too for all of your crucial support in everything that we have done; support with homework, extra learning and projects. Thanks for all the cards and presents too- I was totally overwhelmed.


I wish you all well and the very best in Year 6 - you will have some amazing teachers!
