Welcome to the website of the Toftwood Infant and Junior School Federation. We have one website for the whole federation but if you have any questions that cannot be answered from the website, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We formed a federation in September 2017, with the aim of providing the best quality care, education and support to children in our school community from the ages of 3-11.

Our two schools work closely together as one primary phase school, ensuring we have a clear picture of a child's journey from Reception to Year 6, working together to provide a single school community where the children are at the heart of all that we do. With both schools on a shared site, we are excited with the opportunities this provides us all with. Our children regularly work together and enjoy experiences such as authors, theatre companies and joint clubs. Our Year 5 and 6 children work as playground pals with the Infant children, giving peer support and friendship. Our staff work together looking at the whole curriculum and the skills we need to progress and build upon our learning from Reception to Year 6 and we work with pre school settings and high schools to ensure smooth transitions into and from our schools.

We see ourselves as one school community with one shared vision, and one clear purpose and are pleased to be working to create something special for the children and families in our federation.

From January 2020 we are excited to be working with the Children's Centre to host events for parents/carers and children such as baby massage as part of our work within the local community. This is open to any families in the local area, and not just those who attend our schools.

There is always so much to take in when looking at or starting a new school, so we hope you will find this useful to remind you of things that happen in school. We hope this will help and support you during your child’s time with us, but please also look out for:

  • Regular Newsletters. Please note these are emailed directly to parents so please ensure we are notified if your email address changes.
  • Curriculum Newsletters that will tell you what we are learning about each half term. These are emailed and added to the website.
  • Text messages from us with the latest news and information
  • Email communication
  • The latest news section on the website. Something is added every week, which will tell you about the events children have been taking part in, visits they have been on or things to celebrate. Please do look at them and share in what is happening in our federation.

If there is ever anything you would like to know, have a concern about or if you just want to mention something your child has enjoyed, please do let us know. You can call in, ring us or email us!

Please do book a visit if you would like to see what we can offer. We look forward to meeting you.

Joanna Pedlow, Executive Headteacher
