New and Prospective Parents
Welcome to Polesden Lacey Infant School - An inclusive community where everyone has a part to play.
For those who are new to the school or who are looking at Polesden Lacey Infant School for your child we have included some recent quotes from current parents. They make us blush a little but they also encapsulate what we do and show that we live and breath our vision and values.
'As a parent my main priority is to find a safe environment where my girls will feel secure to step out of their comfort zones and grow. Where they can be themselves and be curious both in and outside of the classroom. An environment that encourages mistakes as necessary steps in learning and not only teaches the curriculum but encourages and supports parents and pupils to make positive choices to shape a brighter, sustainable future for our planet.
Harper was taught by all the current teaching staff and she was never a number in a room. She was an individual with a personality that got taught in a personalised way that challenged her but brought the best out of her.' Current Reception and last year's Year 2 parent.
'I can not praise Polesden enough for their handling of the school situation during lockdown. My other daughter (at a private school) had a very different experience and I feel other schools could learn a lot from Ms Mole and the management and teaching team at Polesden. The messaging and direction was clear throughout, the pastoral care was constant and we still felt so part of the Polesden family even when the school was closed. It reaffirmed my belief that this is a truly special little school.' Current Reception and current Year 2 parent.
'We have been so amazed by how Polesden Lacey Infant School have dealt with the pandemic. They went above and beyond to ensure the children were safe, happy and had access to their education as best they could. Every single member of staff put in extra time to enable the school to still function and the fact they even managed to get the year 2 class back in before they moved on to their new schools was truly wonderful. We honestly believe this school handled it better than anywhere else and we are truly impressed.' Current Reception and current Year 2 parent.
“This is a wonderful school with wonderful staff who create a very inspiring, warm and nurturing learning environment for our children.
The management during the pandemic and school closure showed just how amazing the school is. We were overwhelmed by the amount of hard work, love and care that was put into supporting us at home and keeping a strong connection with the children. They loved the regular video story times, personal messages from their class teacher and photos of their classmates in the weekly newsletters.
The school made a huge effort to get our year two children back into school for a short period of time at the end of the term. It meant so much to them having a closure and being able to say good-bye before moving on to their junior schools.
Thank you so much for being such an amazing team and for making this school such a perfect place for our children to start their educational journey.” Current Reception and last year's Year 2 parent.
