Welcome to Paulton Infant School

Thank you for considering Paulton Infant School as the educational setting for your child to join in September. We are looking  forward to welcoming them, and you, into our community. Please direct all enquiries to the general school email address at

Starting School - Transition

Many children find the transition to school both exciting and a little overwhelming so we hope you appreciate how important it is to adapt to school life in a slightly staggered time frame. It is important for everyone’s safety and wellbeing to form connections with children and establish key rules and routines. While some children have been used to attending pre-school settings for long days, they now need to adapt to having fewer adults for support. We have found that a staggered start to school suits our children best. The first week involves children coming for either the morning or the afternoon; in the second week all children come for just the morning; in the third week they stay for lunch; and in the 4th week everyone is full time. Below you can see our transition timetables for children starting school in September 2024.
