Charitable Trust & Fundraising
Wallace Fields Infant School & Nursery has a charitable trust status, and we hope the below gives you more information on the aims of the Trust and what it will mean for you, as parents, and your children.
A great strength of Wallace Fields Infant School is the tremendous partnership between parents and school and our intention is to give parents a wider choice of ways in which to support their child’s education.
We believe that the quality of the learning environment and support and care for the children at Wallace Fields Infant School exceeds the basic provision for infant aged children—for example;
- Specialist music teacher and trained adults for small group work
- Full time teaching assistants in each class to ensure that children can have individual and small group attention to their learning needs
- Air conditioning in every class
- State of art interactive whiteboards in each classroom
- A computer /ipad ratio of 1:5 children
- Activities and equipment in the playground
- Workshops, theatre and dance groups, storytellers etc.
The curriculum entitlement is broad and schools are provided, by the Government, with resources to ensure that every child’s basic educational needs are met. At Wallace Fields Infant School & Nursery, this provision has always been seen as the foundation on which to build a far richer school experience.
To help achieve our mission statement ‘High Achievement and Success with a Smile’, we rely on the good will of parents in terms of giving their time to come in and help in school and also in supporting their child’s learning at home. However, in order to continue to provide the high standard of education, additional funds need to be generated through fundraising within the school.
