Welcome to Ladysmith Infant School & Nursery

"At Ladysmith Infant School and Nursery we encourage children to respond to learning experiences with enjoyment, purpose and vitality."


These aims and values are based on the school's Aims and Values Policy, adapted by the Parents and Community Committee. They are extremely important to all of the school community: children, staff, parents, governors and the wider community.

What is the first and foremost aim of the school?

  • To provide the highest quality education possible. This reflects a caring, committed attitude, which helps all adults and children to achieve the highest standards they are capable of in any area of the curriculum.
Everyone at Ladysmith Infant School wishes to:
  • boost people's desire to learn;
  • raise expectations and change attitudes towards learning;
  • achieve a real, measurable and beneficial difference in behaviour;
  • to strive for happiness and a positive attitude towards life in the school;
  • to see that childhood is an important part of life to be enjoyed and valued in itself, and not simply as a preparation for adulthood and the world of work;
  • to respect, encourage and recognise work carried out by all members of staff of the school, including teachers, classroom assistants, office staff, meal-time assistants, parent helpers, cleaners and caretaker.


At Ladysmith schools, when we refer to the ‘Curriculum’, we not only mean the planned activities that we organise to promote learning and personal and social development, but also the range of extracurricular activities and the ‘hidden curriculum’ (what children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave).

We have developed a highly successful Early Years and Primary learning environment that reflects practice that is always aware of the developmental needs of the whole child; and explores learning strategies and experiences to support the range of need as pupils move through the key stages.

We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills so that they can achieve their full potential.


During the school year, children at Ladysmith schools participate in a wide variety of experiences, all of which make up our substantial enrichment programme.

We pride ourselves on the opportunities offered to pupils, which include:

  • Regular theatre visits
  • Working with local artists
  • World music workshops
  • History theme days
  • Team building activities
  • Special guests
  • Whole school productions in the Junior school
We organise many educational visits throughout the academic year, both day and residential, which rely on contributions from parents and carers. These trips enhance our children’s learning, enable them to gain greater understanding and allow them to enjoy new experiences.


Our children take part in a range of extra curricular activities due to the voluntary support of staff and parents. Extra-curricular activities include:

  • Art, Chess Club, Choir, Computer, Dance, Drama, Football, Gardening, Guitar, Gymnastics, Netball, Orchestra, Recorder, Rock Band, Samba and Tag Rugby.
Many of our children receive instrumental tuition and take part in assemblies and performances. Older children have the opportunity to spend a week at a residential centre either in France or on Dartmoor.
