Head Teacher's Welcome Message

I feel privileged to be the Headteacher of Nettleworth Infant and Nursery School and I am delighted to welcome you to our NEW website!

There is something very special about our school and we are incredibly proud of our unique children, our hardworking, enthusiastic staff and our supportive parents and governors. We all work together as a team to ensure every child experiences a high quality, motivating education, so that our school is a safe, happy and fun place to learn. We have high expectations of everyone in our school community and believe that everyone has the ability to excel and achieve great things.

Our school educates children from the age of 3 to 7 years. Our youngest children are educated in the nursery unit (Foundation Stage One) on a part time basis before transitioning to the infant school for full time education. Our nursery takes up to 52 children and has 4 qualified members of staff. In the infant department there are 7 classes and the staffing ratios are very favourable, with children working with teachers and teaching assistants throughout the day.

It is our aim to work in close partnership with parents to help our children enjoy their time at Nettleworth. In our most recent survey, our parents indicated that one of our main strengths is that the children love coming to school and feel safe when they are here. We want to ensure that this continues, so that children flourish and achieve in our nurturing care.

Our ethos encourages everyone at Nettleworth to be self-motivated learners and to develop personally and socially. We value perseverance, resilience and curiosity and the aspiration to achieve and be the best they can.

We pride ourselves on delivering a quality education for all children through our inspiring curriculum, which promotes high academic standards whilst valuing creativity and imagination. We strive to ensure that learning for our children is meaningful, motivating and memorable and prepares them for the future and for life in an ever changing world. Our outdoor environment is particularly outstanding and conducive to play-based and active learning.

We hope that our website will give you the information you need about our school. Our website will continue to grow and evolve over time as we add more detail, but it can never replace the first-hand experience of visiting our amazing school - our door is always open!

If you would like to know more about our school then please contact our school office. We would be delighted to show you around to introduce you to everyone and everything that makes Nettleworth such a special place to be.

Thank you for visiting our website!
