 Coronavirus Latest News

Please be aware that if we have an outbreak of more than 1confirmed Covid case within a Bubble, we need to seek advice from Public Health England, which could necessitate closing the Bubble. Please make sure you have contingency plans in place for this eventuality should the worst case scenario happen. Thank you for your understanding. 

Welcome to Pilton Infants' School!

Our Vision

To treat everyone as valued learners and working in partnership with others, ensure success for all.

Welcome to our website which shows the special qualities that Pilton Infants' School offers. We hope it conveys the happy and secure atmosphere that the children are able to enjoy.We would like this website to present a face to the wider world and give it a place within the Global Community.

Although pictures and words cannot show exactly what our school is really like, hopefully it gives you some idea of our school ‘Family’ and just like a family album, helps you to share in some of the magic moments we experience every day.

Our passion for learning enables us to plan the most exciting, relevant and challenging experiences which enable children to think deeply about the world they live in and their influence on it.

We all have a real pride in our school and in our achievements. Have a look at the Children's pages for more photos and information about the learning that takes place here.

FREE bedtime stories!

Mrs Ruddick has set up a channel with over 70 bedtime stories for children to listen to and enjoy.

A story is a great way to teach children vocabulary and concepts about the world as well as being fun and a good part of a bedtime routine. 

You can find the stories by searching for Stories n Stuff on Youtube or here:

Always supervise children when they access the internet.

Looking after our mental health

During this difficult time, we all experience ups and downs.   It can be boring, lonely and frustrating and we all have different ways of dealing with those feelings.

This website has some great advice on how to helping your child and support their mental health and well-being.  There are ideas, and tips on how to talk to them about what's happening.

Please also get in touch with the school if you are struggling, we can phone and chat with you and your child and advise you on where to go for further support.
