Welcome to our School Website

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our website and hope that you find it easy to use and full of the necessary information about our school.  We are a large three form entry Infant School situated in the south area of Witham. We work closely with Howbridge C of E Junior School with whom we share our school site.  We have an extremely talented and committed staff team and Governing Body who work hard to provide the very best for the children in the school. We offer a stimulating and caring learning environment which we are constantly improving both inside and outside to capture the interests and imagination of our children. Our curriculum is rich and varied to ensure that there are many opportunities for children to achieve and develop their individual talents.  A close and supportive relationship between school, our families and the community is really important to us and we have lots of opportunities for them to be involved in our children's learning in our drive to provide a high quality education for every child.  We always welcome the opportunity to show people around our school and share our achievements and successes. If you would like to visit us, please make an appointment with the school office. 
Ofsted inspection judgements - July 2013 - Judged as Good:

Children are keen, willing learners who co-operate well with each other and with adults.  Children's personal and learning needs are quickly identified and they are well supported.  Pupils say they enjoy learning and their parents agree.
The teaching is good because teachers use questioning skills well to encourage pupils to think about their studies and to test their understanding.
