Respect, Effort, Attitude, Collaboration, Honesty
A very warm welcome to Thomas A'Becket Infant School.
Children at Thomas A’Becket Infant School are enthusiastic, confident learners who are supported to develop independence and resilience.
Young children foster a love of learning when they are interested and motivated to learn. We plan creative and immersive cross-curricular experiences which engage deeper thinking skills that are memorable, purposeful and imaginative for ALL children.
Not all learning happens in the classroom and children truly value their outdoor Forest School learning environment. Forest School
provides a natural space for children to learn some practical life skills and develop collaborative working partnerships with others.
The activities planned and implemented in Forest School have direct links to our classroom topics and provide many and varied opportunities to explore specific areas.
Our 'School Values' are embedded throughout the curriculum.
The children understand that these 'Values' promote a ‘Safe and Kind’ school, where we help the children through our embedded emotional literacy to be 'Ready to Learn'. This helps develop a sense of wellbeing within our school, so children feel safe to take healthy risks and 'REACH for the Stars'. Our 'School Values' are linked to both our 'Relationship Policy' and planning.
Our school promotes understanding of emotional literacy, so when children move on they already have a disposition of responsibility and a richer understanding of emotion.
Emotional literacy supports self-regulation and encourages a deeper sense of belonging. Children will develop into positive members of our school and in turn, valuable members of our wider community.
Please come and visit Thomas A'Becket Infant School. We would be delighted to show you around!
