Welcome to Shalford Infant School. We are a small village school, with just four classes, providing education for children from two to seven years old.
Our driving force is our vision of 'Enjoying Learning Together'. This can be seen every morning when the children rush into school with smiling faces, eager to learn. The talented team of teaching staff plan a curriculum that provides memorable experiences and purposeful activities that engage children of all ages and abilities. With just four classes, every child is special to us and we get to know our pupils and families very well, developing strong relationships that work for the benefit of the children.
We all enjoy learning together here at Shalford and academic success is high, the results and outcomes our children achieve are higher than national averages and Surrey averages but we know that this is only one part of what will make them successful in their lives. We recognise that they must also master other skills to really thrive in the future. Skills such as problem solving, how to be calm, have self-awareness and self-control, how to keep trying even when things go wrong, to have a positive outlook on life and believe that they themselves have the power to make changes in their own lives, to be kind to other people and look to add happiness to the world and find positives in the challenges they will face.
We are a values led learning school, we explicitly teach children a set of values, which enable them to be the very best person that they can be. These values are like a golden thread that runs through the school, encompassing all that we do here. Thoughtfulness, honesty, empathy, tolerance and courage are just a few of the values that children and staff live by every day.
We have high expectations of all children and of our staff, but not at the expense of well-being. We believe that children should leave our school independent, happy and secure in who they are, with our school values packed in their invisible rucksacks, ready to take with them on the next step of their education journey.
We hope that our website captures the spirit of the values of the school and is informative for parents. However, the best way to find out about the school is to come and see for yourselves. I would love to show you around and tell you more about what we do. Just telephone the school on 01483 562143 to arrange a visit.
