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.
I was so proud of the Year 2 children on Wednesday evening. They performed ‘Eddie the Penguin Saves the World!’ to their families and friends and then shared their favourite memories about Ditton Infant School. The standard of the performance was exceptionally high for 6- and 7-year olds and I must congratulate the Year 2 staff team for pulling everything together. The theme of the play tackles environmental issues, from recycling to saving water and energy and ties in well with our Eco-school work. The collection at the end of the performance raised £79.90 which will be added to the monies raised from our Sea Creature dress up day.
On that note I am delighted to inform you that we have now won our Silver Eco-school award. We originally planned to reach this point in 18 months, but Miss Seymour and her Eco-council have worked tirelessly to drive this forwards and we have reached it in under a year. What a fantastic end to the academic year!
The teachers have some fun activities planned next week for the children and we will be awarding two Year 2 children with the most improved writer awards. We will also give out our attendance awards. Please remind your child to hand in their colouring sheet next Tuesday morning so it can be entered into the class draw.
Well done to Gold Class as well who won Attendance Ted this week with 100%.
This is my final blog for this term so please can I take this opportunity to thank you all for your support over the last year and I wish you all a happy Summer holiday.
Mrs C Lewer

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.

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
