A warm welcome to our website from the staff, children, Governors, Friends of Calmore Infant School!

Ofsted 2018 –  “Pupils achieve highly”, “Staff are exceptionally positive”, children say “they enjoy learning and thinking hard”.

Our school is a friendly and welcoming 2 form entry Infant school.  The outside play areas for Reception and Year 1 provide learning opportunities outside the classroom and we extend learning through the variety of afterschool or lunchtime clubs.

We want our children to love learning. It is our aim that they learn how to be effective learners, grow in confidence, persevere and achieve academically and grow socially.

Our mascot is Milly the school Rocking horse who stands in the entrance hall. For some of our parents Milly is a reminder of their time in the school! We value the support of our parents and we aim to work in partnership to achieve the best from any child being at our school. The school is fortunate to have a very active Friends Association to help raise money for different resources in school. We also have the Caterpillar Pre- school on site.

We are proud of our school and our children’s achievements and we hope you enjoy looking through our website, and finding out about us. If you have any queries or if you wish to visit please contact the school office and we will be happy to help.
