This website is your source of information about Mousehold Infant and Nursery School, Norwich. Read our Prospectus and get the latest school news whenever you need them. Major school documents such as Pupil Premium funding and Sport Premium funding as well as school policies are available online, as is the school’s latest Ofsted report.

Mousehold Infant and Nursery School is a happy, calm and exciting place to learn and we are proud of our children’s positive and caring attitudes towards others and the high standards they achieve during their time with us.

We believe children make the best progress when they feel confident about what they can do and want to do, their self-esteem is high and they are keen to learn. Our staff team work in close partnership with parents and carers to support each child in developing a love of learning and the skills, knowledge and understanding essential for future success.

At Mousehold Infant and Nursery School we take care, aim high, enjoy learning and achieve success. We do this through the use of High Five. Take a look here

Take Care – Enjoy Learning

Our positive approach to behaviour and discipline has been established for many years. It is a strength of the school, and has been highlighted as such in all four of our Ofsted inspections.

We expect everyone to behave with respect and politeness, caring for one another and working well together. This creates the positive learning atmosphere for which our school is well known, where children and staff enjoy their work and can achieve their best.

Aim High – Achieve Success

Our most recent Ofsted inspection in July 2013, praised many aspects of the school, including the excellent behaviour, the high quality of teaching and learning and the high standards achieved by the children.

Facilities and Community Links

The school has nine classroom bases and an excellent, purpose built nursery with outside play area, that takes children from the age of three.

The school works in close partnership with Patchwork, our local childcare facility, providing toddler, after school and holiday facilities for children and their families. Some staff work at both settings.

The nursery and reception classes together form our highly regarded Foundation Stage. The school building is surrounded by an extensive, grassed area. This includes an adventure play area, playing field, a wild garden area and an organic allotment. Many clubs run at lunchtimes and after school including football, multi-skills, dance, cooking around the world, art, ICT and recorders.
