Learn to let your light shine

In this section:

                          We are delighted  we were graded as OUTSTANDING in our SIAMS inspection.

Welcome to our school website, we hope you find want you are looking for.

 

We are really proud to be able to share the report from our recent Ofsted Inspection, you can find it in the About Us section

School is now closed for the summer holidays. We look forward to welcoming the children back on Tuesday 3rd Spetember.

               

(Jesus said) “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put in under a bowl. Instead they put it on a stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your father in Heaven.”

(Matthew 5: 14-16) (taken from the Sermon on the Mount)

“Learn to let your light shine!”

This passage taken from the words of Jesus at the Sermon on the Mount, underpins our vision to work to support all pupils and staff to flourish and excel in their aspirations. We welcome all God’s children and their families into our Driffield Infant School Community. A place where children and adults  of all faiths and none, flourish and are inspired by the Christian character and values of our school and learn to love God, one another and themselves (Mark 12:30-31)in order that they can ‘Live Life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10).

Our Christian Values:

Friendship, Peace, Respect, Honesty, Perseverance, Creativity

 This  term we are reflecting on our School Vision 'Learn to Let your light Shine' and thinking about Creation and Forgiveness as well as revisiting our school values.

Some comments from parents on our recent survey .

'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  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. Our vision, rooted in the teachings of Jesus is that we all 'learn to let our lights shine' and 'live life in all it's fullness'. In order to achieve this we encourage the children 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. Our aim is that all of our children will fluorish and learn to love God, themselves and one another.  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 Vision and our Values are central to everything we do. We were delighted to have this recognised during our last 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 pride ourselves ourselves in being a place where children and adults  of all faiths and none, flourish and are inspired by the Christian character and values of our 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, Special educational needs, 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.
