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.
As I mentioned last week the PTA are holding their AGM on 30th September at 9.30am if anyone would like to attend. The venue is Woodstock Café and we will be recruiting new committee members and voting the Chair, Secretary and Treasurer into office for the year. Your attendance and support are much appreciated.
It was lovely to meet so many of our new children and their parents during lunchtime this week. The lunches were well received and we look forward to Year R being at school for the whole day from Monday.
Please remember that children are not permitted to bring rucksacks into school. It has made a big difference to our cloakroom areas which are now much tidier and present as less of a trip hazard.
Can I also remind all parents that the car park is for staff only. Please do not use this entrance at the start and end of the school day as it is not safe for children entering or leaving the school site.
Like many schools, we have decided to trial the new government baseline assessment scheme this year for children in Year R before it becomes statutory next September. The link below provides a brief explanation about how the assessments take place if you are interested.
Well done to Gold Class as well who won Attendance Ted this week with 99.3%.
Have a lovely weekend

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 7th 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 or email email@example.com 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.
For further information, please contact the School Office.
