Thanks for your interest in our school!

Recreation Road Infant School is an exciting and happy place to be.  Our school’s purpose is to build strong foundations for a lifelong love of learning and we believe passionately that infant education should set children up to thrive throughout life.  We have only three years with the children and we believe that these are vital years for shaping positive attitudes to learning, themselves and each other.

We have 12 classes altogether, which makes us one of the largest infant schools around.  However, we work hard to tailor the learning to individuals and groups of learners, in order to make it purposeful, motivating and relevant to them.  We provide a warm and caring environment for children and families alike, as we know that young children learn best when their families are actively involved in the learning journey.

Our school is located on a 9-acre site and the children have access to a range of outdoor environments, including an excellent Early Years outdoor learning area, large school field, and a small woodland used for Forest School.  We pride ourselves on being warm and welcoming, so if you want to find out more, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
