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

The children enjoyed a visit from ‘The Bug Roadshow’ this week. They were given the opportunity to look at and hold creatures such as a Giant Atlas moth, caterpillars from India, giant centipedes and millipedes and hissing cockroaches from Madagascar. Thank you to Mr Pollard who organised and co-ordinated the workshops.

We were able to hand over 7 shoe box gifts to Priscilla Payne this week containing gifts and a donation for the Samaritan’s Purse Operation. Thank you to all those families who donated something for the boxes or money to help cover the postage.

Thanks must also go to the PTFA as they organised the Bag2School collection this week. I am sure they will let us know soon how much this new venture raised.

Well done to Silver and Blue Class who won Attendance Ted this week with 97.6%

Don’t forget that we are having an attendance themed coffee afternoon at 2.30pm on Monday 12th November. Please come and meet Danielle Jenken who will have hints and tips about how we can all work together to promote good health and attendance at school.

It is Remembrance Sunday this weekend. I hope the children will be wearing the poppy they made, and I am sure some children will be joining in with the local parades on Sunday. We would like to add some photos to our display so if you take some over the weekend please send them in via the office.

Have a lovely weekend.

Mrs C Lewer

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) and Mrs Savoury 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:

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.
