Headteacher's Welcome

On behalf of our children, staff and Trust, I would like to welcome you to our school website.

I am very proud to be the Headteacher of Stourfield Infant School, supported by a highly skilled and dedicated team of teachers and support staff. Our school is a four-form entry infant school, we work very closely with Stourfield Juniors, our neighbours! We are a welcoming and supportive community where we learn together in harmony.

Stourfield Infant School is a very special place. Visitors comment positively about the school from the children’s behaviour and their enthusiasm, to the staff’s ongoing commitment and dedication. We understand the power of education and take very seriously our duty to give your children the best start in life. I am personally very proud to be a member of this community.

We are a friendly, caring school with high expectations for all our pupils. Our children are encouraged to explore, discover and question through a range of exciting learning opportunities both within and outside the classroom. Our staff endeavour to provide a calm and stimulating environment where good behaviour and mutual respect is modelled by everyone, and where everyone is valued.

Our school recognises the value and uniqueness of each individual child and adult alike at Stourfield Infant School. We celebrate the talents and gifts of each child and enable them to develop to their full potential spiritually, morally, academically, socially and physically. Our school values to Aspire, Respect and Collaborate speak of our commitment to being the best we can be and to help our children become successful and happy young people. Their learning and personal development are our driving force.

We continue to work in partnership with schools in the Trust, parents and the community, all of which act as the driver for our continuous improvement.

Stourfield Infant School is proud to be a part of the Twynham Learning Trust. To find out more about our Trust, please follow the link to ‘Tywnham Learning’ at the top of this page.

I hope you enjoy finding out more about our school by browsing our website. Visits are encouraged and welcomed: we would be delighted to show you around our wonderful school!

Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
