Limpsfield Church of England Infant School caters for children between the ages of 4-7. Located in the beautiful and safe setting of Limpsfield Common, managed by the National Trust, we offer an excellent all-round education within a caring and supportive environment. There has been a school on this site since 1832 and within our 21st Century facilities some of the original stone walls have been retained to provide a reminder of those bygone days and traditions. We hope that this prospectus gives you a flavour of our School, but please do take the opportunity to visit, by appointment, and see for yourself the inclusive and caring atmosphere that permeates throughout the School.

Aims of the School

At Limpsfield School our vision is for a vibrant, high achieving and forward looking community. We value the ‘pupil voice’ and have involved the children in reviewing the school aims, which are written in language that they understand.

At Limpsfield we aim to provide a strong Christian framework within which the children:

• Enjoy learning, knowing that they are safe, loved and cared for.
• Have lessons that are exciting and fun.
• Are taught to be confident, independent and to take pride in their work and surroundings.
• Are encouraged to say what they think and feel, and to respect the views of others, particularly for other faiths, cultures, values and differences.
• Develop a sense of discipline and order by setting clear, consistent boundaries.
• Are encouraged to participate fully in school life and the decision-making processes.

Ofsted Summary

School Links

The school has at its core a sound base of Christian values which underpin all that we do.
We have close links with St Peter’s Church, Limpsfield and the community it serves.
Our school is also a member of the Tandridge Confederation and works in partnership with other schools and organisations to ensure that all children in the area get the very best start in life.

Every Child Matters

Our work at Limpsfield School is linked closely to the Department for Children, Schools and Families ‘Every Child Matters’ agenda. The underlining aim of this initiative is for every child to:
• Be healthy
• Stay safe
• Enjoy and achieve
• Make a positive contribution
• Achieve economic well-being
These aims are at the heart of everything we do.

Introduction to the School

Limpsfield School is a voluntary aided, co-educational school supported by the Diocese of Southwark in partnership with the Local Educational Authority.
We have a strong Christian ethos which permeates through the school day, with prayers said before lunch and again before leaving at the end of the day. We welcome children of all faiths and it is not essential to be a member of St Peter’s Church to gain admission.
We value open communication with parents/carers and encourage them to take an active interest in our school.

Organisation of the School

The school has a pupil admission number of 50 per year, and classes are arranged into Reception, Reception/Year 1 and Year 1/Year 2. Each class has an equal mix of age, ability and gender.

Facilities

Inside our character building beats a modern heart. ICT forms an integral part of the daily school experience. The use of laptops starts in Reception and all classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards to enhance the teaching and learning experience.
A computerised library has been set up to encourage children to develop a love of books and to follow their own interests as well as school topics. Other facilities include a specially designed cooking area with tiles painted by the children themselves.
The school has two playgrounds with one set aside for the youngest children. Both are extensively equipped, with the younger children able to enjoy bikes, slides and other specialist apparatus. Both playgrounds are regularly used to support outdoor learning in all areas of the curriculum.
One special aspect of the school is its unique position on Limpsfield Common, which we use for games, sports and environmental studies, as well as an outdoor classroom. Limpsfield village also offers opportunities for practical studies and fieldwork.
