If you are currently a Parent/Carer of a child at Ditton Infant School, we hope you will find that the website keeps you up-do-date with what’s going on in school and helps you to support your child’s learning. If you are a Parent/Carer considering Ditton Infant School as your child’s first school, we trust that you will gain an initial introduction to us and gain a flavour of what we do.
As you will now be aware Mr Green has now been appointed as Headteacher of Brook Community Primary School in Ashford. He has been part of the Ditton community for 4 ½ years and I have enjoyed working alongside him over the last year. I am sure you will join me in wishing him well for the future. We also said a fond farewell to Mr Worth, Headteacher of Ditton Junior School.
A further 5 children have been in the Gold Book 5 times and I look forward to having another afternoon tea when we return after half term.
Thank you to Blue and Purple Classes who put on their ‘Fabulous Finish’ which included a carnival parade on Thursday.
On Thursday 8th June Caterlink will be holding a ‘taster’ session from 2.45pm on the playground so do come along and try some of the food.
Have a restful half term. I hope the good weather continues!
We understand that choosing the first school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make.
We will be holding Open Mornings in November where we will give you a tour around the school and provide you with all the information you will need to apply for your child’s place.
All staff and governors are committed to ensuring that children are happy to come to school, thrive when they are in school and go home keen to return the next day. Children who have high levels of wellbeing are likely to be more ready to learn and make progress.
We have a dedicated, therapeutic environment and a well-trained team of staff to support the emotional needs of the children and families at Ditton Infant School.
Karen Gillard (Inclusion Manager) leads our Wellbeing Team. She is supported by Angela Coles and Karen Bridle who are experienced teaching assistants with enhanced training.
We use the Leuven scales to monitor children’s wellbeing and involvement and we have a ‘worry box’ in the hall which all children are able to access. We are also members of the Massage in Schools Association – Massage in Schools Letter and Policy 2017
Interventions we can offer are:
Drawing & Talking Therapy
Emotional support can also be offered for bereavement, separation and divorce and other personal and social difficulties.
Children will be offered a programme of sessions on a bespoke basis, these can be short term or for extended periods.
For further information, please contact the School Office.
