Because every child deserves the best

Leaders and staff have shared ideas and visions which are put into action every day and in every lesson.

Ofsted, November 2022

All children deserve the best – the best education, the best pastoral care and the best learning environment. Here at Someries Infant School and Early Childhood Education Centre, we exist to provide the best possible early years and key stage one education available. Everything we do is in the interests of children. We have high expectations for every child regardless of their background and we work tirelessly to adapt teaching and learning methods to help each child excel.

We want children to be excited about coming to school, engaged purposefully in their learning and able to articulate their views in polite, respectful and positive ways. Our learning opportunities are irresistible and colleagues work closely together as a team to continuously develop and enhance what we do and how we do it.

Our vision

At Someries Infant School and Early Childhood Education Centre we believe anything is possible. Children have the right to be provided with a creative, innovative and exciting education that will inspire them to become lifelong learners who are enthusiastic and proud of everything they do. We want every child to excel in all aspects of their learning within an immersive, imaginative, expressive and inclusive environment. We want children to become confident discoverers, explorers and creators who live our values. We keep children at the focus of everything we do.

Our clear vision is built on the principle that anything is possible. Drawing from extensive educational research into high quality learning and teaching, our curriculum intends to provide an education for the whole child and is informed by strong values which emphasise equality, equity, compassion and community in which everyone’s voice is welcome and valued. It is through our inclusive, warm and caring approach that we know our pupils will flourish, reach their academic and social potential and move along their learning journey confidently, with courage and with humility.

Being an educator is a privilege and a great responsibility. We work tirelessly to ensure that every child is prepared to meet life’s challenges. As an organisation, we continually challenge thinking about learning and teaching so that we inspire learning through the principles of discovery, exploration and creativity and we are respected and admired because our pupils live our values and embody our two simple rules: work hard, and be nice to people.
