  • achieve their best
  • become confident individuals and live fulfilling lives
  • make successful transitions into our school, within our school and onto their next educational setting.

Woolston Infant School is a mainstream setting that educates 180 children from the age of 4 to 7. We welcome children of all abilities and needs. Admission of children with Education and Health Care (EHC) plans is supported by the Local Authority in consultation with the school, parents and carers. We firmly believe in inclusion and that all children should be given every opportunity to thrive in our mainstream setting.
