A very warm welcome from all staff, children and governors here at Sitwell Infant School!
On this page you will find lots of information about our outstanding school.
We are a larger than average sized infant school, with capacity for 222 children from Foundation Stage 2 to Year 2. We have a three form entry into Foundation Stage 2 with a standard intake number of 75 children, which may rise or fall within the year. We currently have 225 children in school; 75 in Foundation 2, 77 in Year 1 and 73 in Year 2.
We are situated in a residential part of Rotherham, close to the motorway, General Hospital and town centre. We are fortunate to share a pleasant and extensive site with Sitwell Junior School, with whom we have close liaison; this helps us provide a continuity of education for children from 4-11 years. We are very proud to be a diverse and multi-cultural school, with over 19 languages represented!
The children are accommodated in a single storey building with 8 classrooms off one central corridor. Each classroom is well organised and resourced, has bright and colourful displays of the children's work and are also equipped with state of the art touch screens. We have a central working area along the corridor, which houses our Library, Numeracy resources, reading books and work areas, plus a space used for role play. We hold a number of awards including Parent Charter Gold, Arts Mark Gold, Global Schools, Platinum Award For Enterprise, Eco Award, Healthy Schools and we are very proud to have held the Basic Skills Quality Mark for over 10 years!
We have a large computer suite, with 15 modern PCs, which is used for whole class and small group teaching; as well as over 30 iPads which are used daily to enhance teaching and learning across all subjects. The large Hall easily accommodates all the children for assemblies, P.E., and lunch. Our Foundation Stage has a fantastic outdoor learning space which is well equipped to support all the areas of learning, enabling our very youngest children to learn in a variety of ways.
If you would like to come and have a look around the school prior to applying for a place for your child, you are very welcome to contact the school to arrange an appointment. May I take this opportunity to say thank you for taking the time to visit our website, and I hope you have found the information you were looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.
