Headteacher's Welcome

On behalf of the The Partnership Trust, governors, staff, and children, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your family. At Paulton Infant School, our aim is for your child to continue to develop and grow through this fundamental stage of their learning journey and beyond. During their three years at our infant school we will have a focus for your child to be happy, develop positive relationships with the whole of our vibrant community, see themselves as a learner and develop great life long skills that will enable them to access a positive future.

Our website will provide you with some information about the great things that happen here at Paulton Infant School. We are very proud of our caring and nurturing  ethos, which is commented upon by many of our visitors.

We have a dedicated and highly professional staff team; committed and effective trustees and governors; supportive parents and fantastic children! High expectations and strong teaching lead to consistently high academic achievements at the end of KS1 demonstrating great progress; our parent surveys demonstrate that our parents confidently recommend Paulton Infant School to their friends, neighbours and families. We also have a very high quality learning environment which is supported by our excellent facilities and resources, both inside and outside, including access to Forest School run by our very own qualified Forest School Leader.

Paulton Infant School community all believe that in order for our children to blossom, they need to feel safe and happy in school and as such we are all committed to ensure that every one feels this way. Our aim is to provide memorable, enjoyable experiences and we do this by providing a supportive and stimulating learning environment with many opportunities for your child to grow in confidence, develop high self-esteem and take pride in their achievements.

Together we are about to begin an important partnership to ensure your child grows and achieves their absolute best. We welcome your involvement and look forward to a happy and productive partnership with you and your family when your child joins Paulton Infant School.

We hope our website gives you a good indicator of what our school has to offer, but should you need any further information, require a paper copy or information contained on our website or wish to arrange a visit, please visit our contact page or contact Mrs K Niemand, Mrs Jo Carn (School Secretary) or Mrs Kellie Perry (School Finance Officer).
