The school is organised into Key Stages – Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. There are two classes in each Year group, making six classes in total. Bromley Heath Infant School is involved in the training of teachers and teaching assistants working in partnership with Bath Spa University and further education colleges. In addition we support local secondary school pupils by providing work experience placements.
Parents play a crucial role in the education of their children and we consider parents to be partners in learning. Research shows that children achieve more when there is a close working relationship between home and school; and when parents show a keen interest in their child’s learning. You can support your child’s learning in many ways, including; reading at home; practicing sounds; playing educational games and undertaking practical maths activities. You could also join the Friends of School Association – all parents are welcome!
We believe that nurturing children develops their self-worth and self-confidence as learners and is vital in their development as mature members of our school community.
This is fostered by celebrating the many achievements children make both in and beyond school. Rewards take the form of certificates, stickers, and showcasing their work. Certificates are presented to the children in the Clapping Assembly on a weekly basis. Additional certificates may be awarded for good behaviour and politeness at lunchtimes.
Extra-curricular Activities and Visits
We are pleased to offer a range of extra-curricular activities to our Year 1 and Year 2 children, including multi-sports, tennis, gardening, ICT, Rugby, Drama and Zumbatomic. Children also benefit from a range of cultural experiences through visits to places of interest and working with visiting story-tellers, artists, and performers in school. All year groups will have the opportunity to take part in at least one educational visit during the year.
