Welcome to Field House Infant School and Nursery. I would like to take this opportunity to give you a brief introduction to the school, outlining its vision and values.
We are a happy, friendly, infant school and nursery, catering 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. The Nursery is part-time, taking in up to 24 children in both the morning and afternoon sessions. We hope to soon extend this by offering 30 hours for those who are eligible.
All areas of the school provide high-quality learning and teaching environments. In the main school, there are two classes per year group (nursery, reception, year one and year two), and we are supported by a dedicated and skilled team of teachers and teaching and learning assistants, who are committed to helping each child achieve their full 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 teaching fundamental skills and are passionate that every child leaves us able to read with confidence, fluency, expression and understanding.
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'. We expect everyone 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.
