About Us

Our School provides a quality education for pupils between the ages of three and seven. We are a non-denominational school with a high percentage of pupils from homes where English is not the first language. The school actively celebrates the cultural diversity of our pupils and families. We engage our children’s learning through a varied and exciting curriculum. We see the value in broadening our pupils’ experiences and are very proud of our commitment to expand our children’s horizons and bring their learning alive.

We develop independence in our children supporting their self-reliance whilst still offering lots of experiences for collaborative learning and play. We have embedded Literacy at the heart of our curriculum, recognising speaking and listening as a core essential to learning. The children are continuously monitored and assessed in order to guide planning, teaching and learning. We value not only the education of our children but believe we are ‘all learners’. Our staff are committed to develop their own skills as educators and care givers to ensure the very best of professional standards. They support ‘the whole child’ and go that ‘extra mile’ to ensure our pupil’s emotional as well as educational needs are met. We are recognised in the city for our inclusivity and are often the first choice school for many parents and external agencies. We open our doors to a range of children with emotional, physical and educational needs. We work hard to support our community and offer parent groups for educational and emotional support.

We work closely with our School Nurse, Social Services, and the Educational Welfare Service to do all we can for the health, attendance and education of our children. The school offers a Breakfast Club and a varied programme of after school provision to support our working parents and carers. Merrydale Infants has an active Governing Body, committed in their decision making to guide and manage the school to offer the very best education and support for our children and their families.
