Our Vision

Our Mission Statement

At Whitefield Infant School and Nursery  we are all learners – staff, children, governors and parents. We learn from each other. We learn with each other. We learn together. We are a learning community. Teaching and learning is enriched by our links with establishments and people in our local community and around the world.
Creativity and originality is encouraged. It is supported by a strong commitment to investing in the professional development of all staff and working with parents, agencies and professionals outside school. The safety and well being of all children and those working in school is paramount.
In our school, we believe that the moral, social, spiritual, cultural, emotional and intellectual development of each child is of key importance. Within an inclusive environment we promote an ethos of care through respect for oneself, respect for each other and respect for the environment.
We endeavour to provide an enriching, secure environment and a broad, creative and balanced curriculum. In doing so, we feel that we will succeed in our mission of raising the achievement of all our pupils whilst acknowledging the uniqueness of the individual child.
