Parental Feedback

The communication and leadership of the school is fantastic.

Children and parents are made to feel very welcome and genuinely cared for.

My child loves going to school.

I love that there is music offered each year and that the pupils are given a certain degree of freedom to learn in a way that works for each of them as individuals.

Mousehold is a warm, relaxed, nurturing school - a place that inspires confidence.

The staff are dedicated, professional and welcoming, and the school is led and managed extremely smoothly.

I value the fact that diversity and equality are celebrated at the school.

The phonics teaching is very effective (my son is an avid and quite fluent reader now), and overall I am delighted that my son has spent his infant years here.

Throughout this COVID period I feel Mousehold has led the way in regards to safeguarding, hygiene, awareness and communication.
You as a school are striving to keep our school a safer place to be through these worrying times.
Thank you all for your hard work, as I think when you finally try and relax over the Christmas period you can look back and feel proud of what you have achieved.

We really appreciate all the Facebook posts and emails we’ve received from you. We can’t quite believe that our final year with you all has been so short but the way in which you’ve engaged with us has been so helpful.   July 2020

I just wanted to say in writing thank you for everything you have done for us as part of Mousehold Community. I am personally very grateful for Key Worker care and would not have been able to work or secure future work without having my son at school.  July 2020

Just wanted to drop you a note to say how much my daughter enjoyed the ‘Hoot with Me’ sessions via Zoom. She was so pleased to see everyone, ask her questions and show the work she has been doing. These sessions have been great as we don’t get out much, so these sessions have really connected her with school, teachers, learning and the ability to do something ‘out of the norm’.  July 2020

Feels like a ‘small’ school – everyone knows everyone and is friendly. May 2019

Although this year has been cut short at school, we haven't felt detached - and have really appreciated the warmth and continued sense of community generated by the school.  July 2020

I just want to say that my daughter has really enjoyed being back at school, the staff at Mousehold have been great with making her feel at ease with the changes that have been in place.  July 2020

In challenging times you have been great at keeping us parents updated with the situation via newsletter and the facebook group and for that I am grateful.  July 2020

My daughter is very excited about starting Year 1 in September.  July 2020

I’m sorry your term has ended abruptly but what you have done to educate and prepare our children for Covid 19 is amazing. My daughter comes home cheerful, full of hope and sound knowledge. She feels safe and happy.  March 2020

Diversity is celebrated and individual needs are well catered for. We know that our concerns are considered and acted upon and we appreciate that. May 2019

School encourages us to teach our children their mother tongue. May 2019

Super proactive with all of the learning and making it a really fun place to be. May 2019

Extra curricular activities and experiences such as forest school, capoeira, ukulele etc. May 2019

Appreciation of pupils achievements outside of school in assemblies. May 2019

IST Statement

Welcome to our lovely school where we take care, aim high, enjoy learning and achieve success. We do this through the use of High Five.

Respect, Help, Learn, Enjoy, Achieve

Mousehold Infant and Nursery School is a happy, calm and exciting place to learn and we are proud of our staff and children’s positive and caring attitudes towards others and the progress the children make during their time with us. We believe in the value of progress in personal development as well as the academic subjects. We believe in every child and encourage each child to have a go and persevere. We watch the children’s self esteem grow each day.

We love to work closely with parents and carers and there are many opportunities for you to be involved in your children’s learning journey with us.

A strength of our school is our positive approach to behaviour management and inclusion. We follow the PATHs curriculum where children learn how to manage their feelings positively.

We work very closely and in partnership with our feeder Junior School, George White Junior and we joined the Inclusive Schools Trust in November 2018. This enables us to work even more closely with local, like minded schools.

Community is important to us. We listen to our community. We would love you to come and visit us. It is a happy place to work and learn.

You can read the latest newsletter opposite. 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.
