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.
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 recent 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 and includes copies of letters that are sent out from school. 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.|
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.
