WELCOME TO OUR SCHOOL
A new housing development to the west of Writtle resulted in the building of Writtle Infant School in 1968, alongside the Junior 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 buildings are regularly refurbished and provide a light, airy, well equipped environment for the children.
Both schools have the benefit of spacious playgrounds and grassed areas for outdoor activities.
The Infant School accommodation is comprised of a main entrance hall which leads to the school's offices and a spacious hall used for PE, assemblies, functions and lunch time dining arrangements. There are six classrooms with their own toilets and cloakrooms, an ICT suite and a library which is located in the main classroom corridor. There is wheelchair access to most parts of the building with the addition of ramps to some entrances. One of our toilets is especially adapted for the use of disabled persons.
The school is a Community School which is financed by the Local Authority.
Visits to the school are most welcome. Appointments may be made at the school office.
The Duckling Nursery
One of the infant school classrooms (the relocatable classroom near the playground) is let to a private nursery. The Duckling Nursery offers part-time pre-school activities for children 2 - 4 years. For further details, please contact Mrs. Sheila Homer, (Manager/Supervisor) 07771 645270.
