Welcome to Field House Infant School and Nursery. I would like to take this opportunity to give you a brief introduction to the school, its values and aims.
We are a happy, friendly infant and nursery school for children aged three to seven years. We are situated in Derbyshire, serving the area of Ilkeston which, is a town in the Borough or Erewash.
We have approximately 200 pupils on roll and are lucky to have our own Nursery. This means that we provide for the education of children from three years old up to the age of seven. The Nursery is part-time, taking in up to 24 children in both the morning and afternoon sessions.
All areas of the school provide high-quality learning and teaching environments. In the main school, there are 2 classes for each year group (nursery, reception, year one and year two) and we are supported by a dedicated and skilled team of teachers and teaching assistants, who support each child to achieve their potential in all areas of school life.
The children are taught through a broad, balanced and creative curriculum that incorporates a wide range of first-hand experiences. We place a great emphasis on the teaching fundamental skills and are passionate that every child leaves us able to read with confidence and fluency.
At our school we work hard to make sure that it is a safe, happy and supportive place where everyone can 'Aspire and Believe to Achieve'. In return we expect them to: Be Kind, Work Hard and Believe.
We enjoy involving parents and carers and the wider community in the life of the school and we are always delighted to welcome visitors and show them our wonderful school.
