- We are happy and hard working, always aiming to do and achieve our best.
- We value and respect each individual.
- We behave with tolerance and understanding towards others, irrespective of race, creed or colour.
The school is a Local Education Authority (L.E.A.) community school for boys and girls aged between 4 and 7 years old. There is space in the school for 270 children. Children are admitted in line with the L.E.A. Admission Policy. 90 children can be admitted into each year group.
Children are admitted into the Reception Year in the September of the school year in which they will be five. Children are able to stay with us until the end of the summer term following their seventh birthday. They will then transfer to Junior School.
The school holds daily assemblies within which there is an act of worship. The school has dispensation from the Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education for these acts of worship not to be of a wholly Christian nature.
We Believe That:
- All children deserve equality of opportunity.
- They are entitled to a full and balanced education which sets high expectations and is appropriate to them as individuals.
- We aim to help all children to become mature and responsible members of the community, who are equipped to express themselves coherently, showing respect for others.
- We aim for them to achieve their full potential.
- We will work in partnership with parents to enable children to take their place in the adult world with confidence and self esteem.
- At Godolphin Infant School we are concerned with the all round development of every child entrusted to us.
- We aim for each child to form positive attitudes to learning and to have the maximum opportunity and encouragement to achieve the aims of the National Curriculum.
- We aim to equip all pupils with the basic tools of learning. The highest priority is put on the teaching of numeracy, literacy and oracy as these skills will provide the sound basis for future educational advancement.
- We aim to help children to develop morally and spiritually; to understand, achieve and maintain acceptable standards of behaviour whilst developing feelings of consideration, tolerance and respect towards others.
- We make clear expectations of all children to treat each other with respect regardless of race, creed, colour, age or ability and actively promote all aspects of equality and justice in our school.
- We aim to provide an educational environment which is stimulating and caring, within which each child has room to grow and develop confidence, intellectual curiosity and a sense of identity.
