Welcome to Waynflete Infants' School
Waynflete Infants' School in Brackley, Northamptonshire
At Waynflete Infants’ School in Brackley, we have created an outstanding learning environment that is exciting, challenging, safe and happy. We want to unlock the potential of every child to help them to achieve both in their learning and as they grow into young citizens.
There are many advantages to attending a specialist infant school. All staff are trained in Early Years provision ensuring that we are able to offer the best curriculum experience for the younger child. This is play based including creativity and fun. The size of the school is small and nurturing with all children known to all staff. We are a tight knit community with an emphasis on the individual child. As Year 2 are the eldest children in the school they are encouraged to be independent and this includes taking on the role of mentoring the younger children. Expectations across the whole school are high resulting in the Year 2 children taking lead roles in the Christmas Production and Leavers Assembly.
We pride ourselves on being a friendly, welcoming school, and hope that you will visit our school when making a decision about admissions. We recognise that making the right decision about choosing a school is important, and we will willingly take time to outline our philosophy and show the quality of overall care and education provided for our children.
Waynflete Infants’ School, being an infants school, focuses on the younger school age child with children from the age of 4 in our Reception class rising to age 7 in Year 2. We have two classes per year group with a maximum of 30 children per class.
In the September after their 7th birthday, children transfer to Key Stage 2 at Brackley CofE Junior School. The link between the two schools is well established and school start/finish times are staggered to ensure parents/carers can easily move between the two sites to drop-off and collect their children.
In April 2012, we became an Academy following our Outstanding Ofsted Inspection. This was done after consulting with parents and enables us to have greater autonomy regarding the future of our school.
The curriculum is broad and balanced and is tailored specifically for infant aged children. Topics are relevant and exciting, based on British values, and aims to prepare young children for life in modern Britain. All children are catered for in the inclusive ethos of our school, irrespective of age, gender, race, ethnicity or disability.
We have full wrap around care, with Breakfast Club providing the opportunity for children to come to school at 8am each day and our After School Club providing care until either 4.30pm or 5.45pm each day. Healthy food and a range of activities promote the values of healthy eating, respect for others, good manners and a caring and sharing environment.
Governors and staff of Waynflete Infants’ School take their responsibility of safeguarding very seriously and is a high priority. All staff have Child Protection Training. The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is myself and our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Watson. The DSLs, along with our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator, Mrs Sara, have also undertaken additional Prevent and Radicalisation training.
I look forward to working in partnership with you, so that together, we can develop an enjoyment of learning which enables your child to succeed.
Mrs Tina Lagdon – Head Teacher
