Welcome to our website. We hope to provide an insight to all aspects of life at the school.

We aim to make school a hap
and rewarding experience for children. Children are taught by a dedicated, caring and well qualified staff. They promote a high standard of achievement and individual development, in a stimulating and attractive environment.

We deliver a broad and balanced curriculum which fosters a positive attitude to learning and provides a firm foundation on which each child can build. Expectations of behaviour, courtesy and effort are high.

We extend a warm invitation to visit the school in order to see us at work. Please telephone for an appointment with the Headteacher.

The Alderton Infant School was opened in 1952 to serve a mixed suburban catchment area. It occupies a single-storey building and is set in beautiful grounds with The Alderton Junior School on the same campus.

The building has wide corridors leading to eight well-proportioned, attractive classrooms. There is an additional classroom situated at the far end of the school. The large assembly hall is well equipped for P.E. and musical activities and there is a separate dining hall that doubles as a television area. Hot meals are cooked on site.

There are two playgrounds; one incorporates a splendid adventure play area with a safety surface and is used by all pupils. The smaller area at the far end of the school has been fenced in and forms part of the outdoor environment created for the youngest children with attractive seating, playground markings, bikes and scooters and small play equipment.

The School is well resourced with up-to-date books, practical equipment, computer software and interactive whiteboards.


The school operates an Early Years Admission Policy whereby children are admitted on a part-time basis in the term prior to their fifth birthday as follows:

Year R

Autumn Born

Spring Born

Summer Born

Autumn Term
Spring Term
Summer Term

(N.B. Autumn Term Birthdays are from 01 September to 31 December, Spring Term birthdays are from 01 January to 30 April and Summer Term birthdays from 01 May to 31 August).

There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority admissions area. In the event of over-subscription places will be allocated using the following criteria in the order given:

Admission Criteria

Children living in the Alderton priority admissions area.
Children with a brother or sister attending the infant or
partner junior school;
Children living in the priority admission areas for Hereward Primary, Staples Road Infant and Junior and Thomas Willingale Primary schools who have applied there, but have not been allocated places;
4. Remaining applications

In the event of over-subscription within any of the above criteria, priority will be given to looked after children and then be determined by a straight line distance from home to school, those living closest being given the highest priority.

Exceptional medical circumstances (supported by medical evidence) indicated at the time of application may override the above.


School uniform consists of grey trousers/skirt/pinafore dress with a white polo shirt, the kind that has a collar with three buttons. Parents can buy a maroon round neck or button through sweatshirt with the school logo from the School Office or a plain grey or maroon jumper/cardigan may be worn.

In summer the girls may wear pink and white check dresses and the boys grey shorts. Sensible black school shoes are worn. All clothing must be named.

Children wear tee-shirts with the Alderton logo, maroon shorts and black slip-on plimsoles for PE.


We like to include parents as much as possible in their children’s education. We firmly believe that home and school should work together and we are happy to answer any questions or concerns. We welcome the involvement of parents supporting at home, in class and with specific events or trips.

Throughout the year there are formal occasions to discuss children’s progress and attainment at Open Evenings, but teachers are also available informally after school to discuss any issues.

Parents can inform themselves about what is being taught in class by studying information sheets displayed either in the corridors or facing outwards on a corridor window near the classroom.

Regular newsletters keep parents informed of school events, and from time to time, there are more detailed talks and discussions on aspects of school life and the curriculum. Parents are urged to attend these and feedback is welcomed.

In addition parents are invited to contribute to the School Improvement Plan each year. Parents are asked to sign a Home-School agreement when their child joins the school.
