Welcome, Vision and Values

Welcome to Briar Hill Infant School 


We are a friendly, vibrant three-form entry infant school teaching children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.  Building Learning Power and Growth Mindset underpin all we do at Briar Hill leading to successful, independent and reflective learners. These values teach children that resilience and perseverance are essential to making the most of every opportunity! The children's behaviours for learning, empathy for others and increased self confidence are all evidence of how important we believe it is to develop a 'whole child', instilling in them a 'can do' attitude and thinking; 'I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...I knew I could!'


We are a successful and highly regarded infant school serving a diverse and evolving community. Parental links are strong and we encourage and foster very positive relationships with parents/carers. We are fortunate to have a supportive Parent School Association (PTA) which enables us to enhance the provision we offer and our school environment.


Our school was inspected in February 2014 and was judged to be 'outstanding'. The ever changing educational landscape and budgets continues to present challenges and opportunities to immerse our children in learning and help to prepare them for life beyond Briar Hill. We are federated with St. Margaret's CE Junior School and have effective links between the two schools though our curriculum links, ethos and practices to ensure a ensure smooth transition and consistency from Reception through to Year 6. 


Please read our aims, values and mission statement below and enjoy looking at the rest of our website which will provide you with an insight into our ethos and the learning environment we create, to support all of our children at Briar Hill Infant School.
