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.
This week we held our ‘Moving to Year 1’ transition event and the Powerpoint presentation can be found under the learning section on our website for any parents who were unable to attend. I hope the parents who did attend found it useful and can see how the move from Year R timetable to Year 1 is a gradual process which is led by the needs of the cohort.
I also visited Ditton Church Pre-school to read a story and get to know some of our new Year R children and I will be doing the same next week at Muddy Puddles.
We held our final Full Governing Body meeting of the year and welcomed Mr Baldock to our team. We will soon be saying a fond farewell to John Sellick who has been part of the Ditton Infant School’s Governing body for many years. He has provided the school with a huge amount of support, and with his extensive building knowledge has monitored health and safety with me.
By now you will have all received your child’s annual report. I hope you enjoyed reading about the progress your children have made and if you have any questions about these please speak directly to your child’s class teacher for an appointment next Tuesday after school.
Next Friday we will be holding a fun event after school with the PTA. We decided that the colour run was so much fun that we would have a water-based obstacle course. I have also volunteered to be in the stocks, so children can throw wet sponges at me for a small cost!!
Well done to Gold Class as well who won Attendance Ted this week with 99.2%.
Have a lovely weekend.
Mrs C Lewer
We understand that choosing the first school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make.
To give prospective parents a chance to see our school operating on a normal school day, we are holding a number of Open Mornings. You are welcome to bring children along to these sessions. Please click here to see a list of our tour dates and times. In addition to these tours we will be holding an Information Evening on Thursday 8th November at 6.00pm for parents only.
Each tour will have a limited number of places so please contact the school office on 01732 844107 if you would like to join one of the tours or come along to the Parent Information Evening.
We look forward to welcoming you to our 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:
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.
