Hawes Down Infant School was opened in 1933. It is a two form entry Infant School with the majority of the children continuing their education at Hawes Down Junior School on the same site. The classes are organised in parallel year groups.

    A Special Opportunity Unit for nine children with severe learning difficulties opened in January 1993 with children integrating where appropriate into mainstream classes.

At Hawes Down Infant School we aim to create a lively, stimulating environment where children will learn to work together in a purposeful and enjoyable way, wanting to be challenged and taking a pride in their own and others' achievements. We encourage the children to be independent, aware of the needs of others, and to be confident in their relationships with both children and adults. We feel it is important that children should be valued as individuals and encouraged to develop their own special talents. By working together we hope the children will learn tolerance and care for others and take these attitudes from school into the surrounding community, enabling them to become thinking and responsible adults.

    By choosing to send your child to Hawes Down Infant School we expect that we will be working in partnership with you to provide an all round education for your child. Such a partnership would also require you as parents to support the school's aims and objectives, to encourage self discipline in your child, to reinforce the school's behavioural policy, to ensure your child attends regularly, and to support the extra curricular activities arranged such as school productions, parents' evenings, open evenings etc. With parents, teachers and children all working together Hawes Down should be able to offer the best kind of education possible.
