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.
All parents will now have received their letters about the availability of milk for all children after half term. School milk is excellent as a mid-morning drink. It provides a nutritional boost and keeps children hydrated between breakfast and lunch, helping them to concentrate and learn so please talk to your child to see if they would like to try this and register as soon as you can.
We hope you have all now had the opportunity to meet your child’s class teacher and discuss how they have settled in and what their targets will be for the term. We have also included some ideas of how parents can support their child at home and there are lots of links to activities on our school website.
After half term you will also see that we have improved our site security as our front gates will have a buzzer entry system with a camera. This will allow the office to see who is at the gates during the school day before allowing visitors onto the school site. At the start and end of the school day the gates will be open as usual but from 9am until 3pm these will now be locked.
Thank you to the Yr 2 children who have spent some time this week planting bulbs at the front of the school and we look forward to a colourful display of blooms in Spring.
And so Term 1 draws to an end.
Have a restful half term and we look forward to seeing you all on 31st October.
We understand that choosing the first school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make.
Please come along to our Opening Mornings on 3rd and 4th November 2016 at 9.30am. There is no need to book, just come along on whichever day suits you best. We will give you a tour around our school and all the information you need to apply for your child’s place. We look forward to seeing you.
