Well done to Year 5 - superb behaviour and really good questions. A pleasure to teach.- A Holt - Sir Teachalot
I would like to say how very polite your children are; holding doors open and offering to help me when they could. It was lovely to see. - Ali Groves - WSSA
The children have been a joy to teach, so enthusiastic and friendly! I hope to work with your school again in the near future.- T Waine - Active Communities Officer
Welcome to Durrington Infant & Junior Schools
A Welcome Message from the Co-Headteachers:
At Durrington Infant and Junior Schools, we pride ourselves on recognising and responding to the individual needs of our children and their families. This is achieved through an encouraging and supportive environment where everyone is motivated to succeed. Our school values recognise the importance of working together to achieve high standards of behaviour, respect and learning which is why we promote a close partnership with parents and carers.
We are a large school with extensive grounds for sports and outdoor activities. We have specialised classrooms for modern foreign languages, computing, music, art, nurture and supported learning. This is enhanced by the expertise of specialist teaching staff to ensure the children access a broad and creative curriculum. This, along with our developing range of extra-curricular clubs, serves to inspire and motivate learning.
We have a Nursery class which takes children from the age of three, where children are encouraged to discover the world through a range of activities in a secure environment.
We are also fortunate enough to have a Special Support Centre (SSC) for nine children with social communication difficulties from 7-11 years old. The Centre is run by highly qualified and dedicated staff members who support the children to integrate into mainstream classes, as well as inside the SSC.
We very much look forward to working together with you to challenge, inspire and motivate your children to become independent, confident and caring citizens.
Mrs Sara Ensor and Mrs Zoe Wilby
