Some comments from parents on our recent survey (July 2018)

'Just want to say a big Thankyou! It has been a pleasure for both of my children going to your school! I will miss the staff and school very much!'


'Have loved having both my children at the school they have thrived with your teaching and the ethos of the school. They couldn't have had a better start to their school life Thank you for everything you have done for them.'

'My child was a late starter (May 18) into reception, from visiting the school he did not want to leave, he loves attending every day. I feel this is a true reflection of an outstanding school and staff. All staff always helpful whatever the question I have is. This for me is very important. I love the books he brings home, which are really bringing on his reading. We couldn't be any happier with out choice of school for our son. Thanks.'

Welcome to our school

Welcome to Driffield Church of England Infant School. We hope that you will find our website helpful whether your child already attends our school or you are considering enrolling your child to join us.

Driffield CE Infant School is a very happy school where children are valued and are at the centre of all our polices and procedures. They are encouraged to develop their communication, problem solving and enquiry skills whilst fostering a genuine love of learning and developing an understanding of the complex world around them We realise the importance of their social and emotional development and well being and ensure we support them not only in flourishing academically but also in having good mental health and self esteem.

One of our main aims is to work in close partnership with our pupils, their parents and carers and our local community, particularly All Saints Church in Driffield. We are proud to be a Church School and our Christian Values are central to everything we do. We were delighted to have this recognised during our Church School  inspection when we were graded as Outsanding. The Church School tab will tell you more about our work as a Church School. We hope that our website will keep you in close contact with life at school. The Parents' section is full of useful information including, school meals, holiday dates, SEN , ways you can support your child at home as well of copies of our most recent newslettersl. Class pages will give you a flavour of what the children have been doing and it is here you will find homework suggestions. Please let us know if there is anything else it would be useful for us to add. We also hope that we can use the pages of the website to keep everyone abreast of events in the community so please let us know of anything that is happening.

I was honoured to be appointed as Headteacher in September 2011. The school has always been successful and considered with high regard but we are all keen to ensure that we do not rest on our laurels and continue to make improvements to ensure we are providing the very best education that we can for your child in a warm, caring and stimulating environment. We recognise that in placing your child in our care you expect the very best from us and we will all strive to ensure that your child flourishes whilst they are with us.

When we accept your child at our school we embrace their family too and are here to support you in any way we can.

Please come and visit if you are considering joining us and remember to stay in close contact with us if you are already with us. Our door is always open!
One of our main strengths is that our children love coming to school and feel safe when they are here, we want to ensure that this continues for many years to come.
