Headteacher’s Welcome Message
Dear Parents and prospective parents.
I am very pleased to welcome you to our school website. I hope that you enjoy looking round the site and it helps you to get a feel for our wonderful school.
Writtle Infant school is a two form entry primary school located in the lovely village of Writtle. Our motto is that our school is “A special place where everyone feels included, valued and achieves their best”. At the heart of everything we do for our children and their families is our safe, stimulating and inclusive learning environment where every member of our community is valued and respected. All of our staff share this vision and recognise children as unique individuals with specific talents and needs. They work tirelessly to provide a varied and engaging curriculum and a positive school experience. You will find our classrooms to be hives of activity and full of creativity and learning, making our school a special place indeed for children.
Being the Headteacher of Writtle Infant School gives me great pleasure. I am fully committed to the community of our school and strive to ensure that the school serves our local children and their families to the best of our ability.
A new housing development to the west of Writtle resulted in the building of Writtle Infant School in 1968, alongside the Junior School premises which had opened in 1963, replacing the two smaller village schools which could not accommodate the increasing numbers of pupils. Both schools share an attractive rural location adjoining open farmland close to Hylands Park and are easily accessible by road via the A414 and the A12. The attractive Infant building is regularly refurbished and provides a light, airy, well- equipped environment for the children. The school also has the benefit of a spacious playground, grassed areas for outdoor activities and each year group has its own garden directly outside the classrooms.
We are very proud of our school and hope that you will visit so that you can see for yourself! Please contact the school office for an appointment.
