Welcome to our website

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.

Headteacher’s Blog

We will continue to practice our emergency procedures this term and will all try moving sensibly and quietly to the school hall. We will tell the children we may need to do this if someone has a bonfire and the smoke is on the playground or if someone sees a swarm of bees around the school so as not to worry or alarm them. Next term we will practice another fire drill as we are installing a new fire door in Red Class over the half term holiday.

As you will already be aware, the NSPCC will be visiting the school on Monday 20th May to deliver an assembly and Friday 24th May is a non-uniform day which will be held to raise money for this charity.

There is still time for parents to complete the parent governor election form. The deadline is midday on 24th May. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions about the role.

Well done to Red Class as well who won Attendance Ted this week with 100%.

Ditton Church Pre-school are holding their Summer Fayre this Saturday, 18th May from 11.00am – 2.00pm on The Green so please come along and support them.

Have a lovely weekend.

Wellbeing at Ditton Infant School

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.

Mrs Campbell (Inclusion Manager) leads our Wellbeing Team.  She is supported by Mrs Coles (Inclusion Assistant) who is an experienced teaching assistant 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:

Sand Therapy
Drawing & Talking Therapy
Lego Therapy
Involvement Groups

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.
