About Us

Wallace Fields seeks to serve the local community children and their parents and aims to provide a caring environment in which each child is highly valued as an individual. All members of the school community encourage children to learn alongside each other happily and harmoniously. We provide exciting and challenging learning experiences that build upon individual children's strengths and interests.

We are committed to providing the equality of opportunity which all children need and are entitled to in order to gain access to the curriculum. Differences between children are recognised and celebrated and we give all children every opportunity to develop their independence.

Our ultimate aim is to give all our children the confidence and enthusiasm to become life long

learners. We believe that it is important to develop inquisitive and enquiring minds, hence the necessity for children to take initiative and personal responsibility for some of their learning. We also believe that it is very important for the school community to work positively together to support the children.

We believe children need to develop personal and social skills through learning with and alongside others, showing respect for themselves and other around them.

At Wallace Fields Infant School we aim to:

  • Provide a fun, happy, caring and stimulating learning environment in which children and staff feel valued, safe and secure
  • Ensure motivation, confidence and enthusiasm for life-long learning, through celebrating achievements and differences
  • Develop an understanding and appreciation of the world in which we live and to take an active part in caring for our environment
  • Inspire confidence and independence by nurturing a passion and love for learning
  • Promote sensitivity towards others
  • Value the partnership between governors, parents and staff to provide the best possible education for all
  • Understand, respect and value the ever changing world in which we live
  • Try our very best in all that we do and to achieve very high standards in teaching and learning across the school
  • Use technology in a thoughtful and respectful way to enhance learning

Living and Working in Surrey

Surrey is a county of contrasts. Only a short journey from London, it also offers a quick escape into peaceful countryside. This pleasant environment is combined with transport links that include the M3, M23 and M25 motorways, road and rail to London, and easy access to Gatwick and Heathrow airports.

In spite of a population of just over a million in a comparatively small area of 650 square miles, 80% of the county is farmland, woods, heath and open land. Although Surrey is a wealthy county, there are areas of relative poverty, particularly around some of the larger towns and a number of schools have pupils with a wide diversity of nationalities, cultures and languages.

Booming economy
There have recently been several major town centre redevelopments in Surrey. In the field of education and research, centres include Royal Holloway University (London) at Egham and Surrey University at Guildford. New research related technologies are also represented at Surrey University's research park and many multinational companies continue to relocate from London to Surrey.

Environmental issues
In Surrey there is a need to balance environmental conservation with the requirement for more homes, roads and commercial development.

For teachers in schools interested in green issues, Surrey County Council promotes environmental awareness with a wide range of initiatives to develop pupils' knowledge and experience.

Tourism and leisure
Surrey provides a wealth of contrasting leisure activities. Among the historic sites are Hampton Court Palace and Runnymede, as well as National Trust properties such as Clandon and Polesden Lacey. Other attractions include picturesque villages, gardens, such as Wisley, racecourses and river trips. Surrey also has seven major arts venues.

Sports centres are also plentiful, among them the Spectrum Centre in Guildford, probably the most exciting leisure complex in the UK. Other first-class facilities are available in Camberley, Egham, Lingfield and Oxted.

For cyclists and walkers there is an extensive network of footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes and Surrey also boasts high-quality shopping malls, particularly in Kingston, Guildford and Camberley.

The Visit Surrey tourism website gives comprehensive information about all these leisure activities.


Surrey has good road and rail links to London, Gatwick and Heathrow airports.
