About Us

Welcome to our exciting, friendly school for pupils ages 3 to 7 years.
Watton Westfield Infant & Nursery School is extremely well resourced with large
open spaces, an adventure playground, large playing field and wild area. We have a
free flow outdoor learning area for Foundation Stage. Much of our learning takes
place outdoors. The classrooms and corridors are bright and spacious and we have
a hall for indoor sports.
Our pupils come to us mainly from the local area of Watton, Carbrooke and Saham
Toney. However, we are always pleased to welcome children from areas further
We work closely with the home to provide a variety of inspiring learning experiences
in a caring environment that nurtures the child whatever their ability or circumstance.
We encourage curiosity and creativity.
The learning environment that we provide encourages, motivates and inspires our
young people. Our dedicated staff make sure that they nurture our pupils as
individuals. All the staff work as a team to ensure that individual needs are met and
each child achieves their personal best. Additional support is provided to those
pupils that need it through intervention programmes, 1:1 support or Teacher
Assistant support. Able, gifted and talented pupils are encouraged and suitably
challenged through an extended curriculum and additional support provided by other
We encourage parents to come in to talk to us for whatever reason and operate an
‘open door’ policy. I will always make myself available to talk to parents and pupils.
Our aim is to enable our pupils to achieve good academic standards within a broad
and balanced curriculum in order to face the challenges of the modern world. Along
with a culture of life-long learning we also encourage our pupils to be polite,
thoughtful and have a caring attitude towards others.
In the long term we expect this prospectus will be the first of many contacts between
home and school. The relationship between parents and the staff is important to us.
It should be a partnership working together for the benefit of the child.
We have a strong Local Governing Body and ‘The Friends of Westfield School’ are
extremely proactive in supporting us. We encourage parents to express an interest
should they wish to join either of these. We participate in many of the town events
and have close links with the churches.
We are proud of our school. We hope this prospectus gives you a general feel of
how the school operates and that you will take the opportunity to visit us.
