Welcome to Robert Piggott CE Infant School

Robert Piggott CE Infant School is a co-educational school catering for 140 pupils aged between 4 and 7 from a wide variety of backgrounds.

A highly regarded part of the community, our school is located in the Thames-side village of Wargrave, 30 miles west of London and set in a tranquil, spacious and secure environment surrounded by trees and gardens. With excellent facilities including playing fields, fully equipped buildings and a heated swimming pool, the school is able to provide the children with a sense of space that fosters learning, physical activity and fun.

Parents, pupils and visitors see the school as a friendly, secure and welcoming environment where the enthusiasm and care provided by the staff goes well beyond just educational aspects. This means children are very quickly settled, happy and eager to learn - a major contributor to the high academic performance the school has continuously maintained.

Academic standards are well above average by the end of Year 2 in Reading, Writing, Maths and Science and exceptionally high in Art, Design, Music and Drama - a key strength of the school.

Robert Piggott CE Infant School

Welcome to the first official stop on the road to your child’s education. Our facilities extend from IT suite to Swimming Pool (Summer Term only), with our award winning art works being displayed throughout the hall, classrooms and library. Our focus is on the early years of development of the children, encouraging reading, writing, simple arithmetic and creative art & play.

IT Suite

The children have been very fortunate to have just updated their IT suite with state of the art systems including laptop computers for working in their own classrooms for project work.

‘The Bridge’

This piece of work was designed by the children with help from one of our local artists. It signifies co-operation and support, two important aspects of character we try and encourage the children to adopt during their time with us.


With art and craft being one of the main elements of our curriculum, helping to develop the childrens' awareness and creativity, we painted this mural. A photograph was taken during a dressing up day and then copied onto the wood before varnishing so we could leave it outside. On this occasion, the topic was on medieval times, but we’ve also done space travel, when the children made space ships piloted by their very own egg head creations, and favourite characters from a book; coincidentally, all the boys managed to have read David Beckham’s autobiography!


Our classrooms are named after birds, Kingfishers, Owls, Woodpeckers, Robins and this one pictured, Doves, which is used for the younger children, offering outdoor activities when the weather permits.

Wildlife Garden

We try and encourage the children to understand and respect their environment. Nature is of course a large element of this and in this wildlife garden we encourage insects and butterflies to show the budding gardeners.

Anne’s Garden

We created this garden in memory of Anne Reid, a former teacher at the school. The children are able to eat their packed lunches in here if the weather suits, and play on the bright percussion instruments during break times.

Play areas

We have excellent wet and dry play areas with climbing frames, counting games, hop scotch etc. all aimed at getting the children to enjoy their first years of schooling, and encouraging healthy, active lifestyles as set out in the DfES document ‘Every Child Matters’.


Gardening 'Patch Club'

The Gardening Club runs every Monday 3.15pm – 4.30pm for 12 weeks during the summer term. We have 8 members between the ages of 6/7 years old. Their project this summer is the ‘Marrowthon’ - who can grow the heaviest marrow? They have successfully grown: radishes/lettuces/runner beans/dwarf beans/spring onions/strawberries and raspberries. They have grown their own tomatoes – sowing them from seed and caring for and weighing the fruit when picked. The children also keep the grounds in wonderful bloom. There is no charge for the ‘Patch Club’.

Le Club Francais

Our French Club runs every Wednesday 3.15pm - 4.15pm throughout the school year. Currently there are 14 children in the Club. This is a complete introduction to language learning through a structured approach with interactive games, drama and acting, story telling, fun songs and crafts. The Club runs for 10/12 weeks and costs £5.30 per session.

Prime Sports Club

Our Sports Club runs every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 3.15pm – 4.15pm. The Club is very successful with 25 children in each session. The facility offers activities including; archery, athletics, badminton, cricket, dodge ball, football, obstacle courses, rugby, team building, tennis, uni hoc and volleyball. The Club runs for 10 weeks at a cost of £30.00. If places are available odd sessions can be booked for £3.50.


For those of you who have wondered about MindLab and what it is, please read on!

MindLab is the world’s largest provider of life-skills education for children in primary schools. At the heart of MindLab is the belief that the most productive way of learning is through having fun and hands-on experience and game playing provides the perfect tool to provide this.

MindLab uses a curriculum-based program of carefully selected games and puzzles from all over the world to encourage children to improve in life and social skills; for example Self Control, Self Confidence, Handling Emotions, Social Cooperation and Personal Responsibility. It also helps to sharpen and develop thinking processes like Decision Making, Spatial Thinking, Memory Training, Problem Solving, Logical & Mathematical Thinking.

Research shows that children who follow a MindLab curriculum demonstrate a substantial and lasting improvement in maths, strategy, problem solving and verbal reasoning, all whilst having fun!

For those who are interested, MindLab runs at Robert Piggott Infant School as an after-school programme on a Monday, straight after school for 1hr 15 mins. Classes are open for Yrs 1 upwards. The terms are generally 11 weeks long with a break for half term and cost £82.50 with a £5.00 registration fee for new members. Please telephone Reama Shearman on 01491-571322 for further information.

Welcome to this term’s Curriculum Focus. This booklet is designed to give you a short summary of the curriculum your children will be covering this term.

Over the years we have developed a creative approach to the curriculum, believing that the choice of a whole school theme unites the children and provides a common discourse at assembly times, as well as giving teachers the opportunity to plan together and share ideas. It also gives parents the opportunity to tune into the theme and research this further at home if they so wish.

The theme of Noah’s Ark provides a good vehicle for learning about animals, water etc. However, much of our learning will also be rooted in exploring deeper questions that encourage the development of thinking skills: Why did God choose to save Noah? How did other people treat Noah? How do we want to be treated at school? And so on.

Last year I had the pleasure of taking some children for Philosophy. Yes, you read correctly! Philosophy for children gives them the opportunity to express their views, raise and answer questions, hypothesise and reason. We had some excellent discussions and the children demonstrated emotional intelligence as well as the ability to explore a line of thinking in depth.

As this new school year begins we aim to continue to give your children the opportunity to develop thinking skills that lead them to be active learners with enquiring minds and the confidence to express themselves in words, but also in music, art, PE etc. We look forward to another exciting term!

Childrens' Work


This is what our school stands for:

Each member of our school is a unique person, valued by others and precious in the sight of God. It is the responsibility and the right of each individual - from the oldest member of staff to the youngest child - to treat others and be treated by them with dignity and respect.

We attach great important to achieving high academic standards. It is equally part of our Christian belief that each child should have the opportunity to develop as a whole person. Childhood is special, a time to be enjoyed and valued in itself. We believe both teaching and learning should contribute, inspiring love of life and the power to live it.

Partnership with the community is an integral part of our school. It involves us in both local and international projects. We believe that the relationships and responsibilities that children encounter within these projects will enrich their learning and enable them to grow in understanding.

As a Christian foundation we believe that every child has the potential to succeed. The challenge for us is to develop the talents of each child to the full.
