Welcome to the website of the Toftwood Infant and Junior School Federation.

We hope you will find the information on our website useful when choosing a school for your child, looking for information because your child attends our school or if you are just looking!

Parents and Carers are lucky to have a range of good schools to choose from in our area, and you will know what is right for your child. We warmly welcome visits now and if you are trying to make a decision about a school for your child, please ring the relevant office to make an appointment. We like to show visitors around in the mornings where you can get a feel for the school and see the children learning and interacting. We are proud of the education and care we provide for our children and look forward to sharing this with you.

We work as one school community from ages 4-11, using the skills and expertise of all of our staff for the benefit of the children and families in our federation. We are a three form entry school, so there are lots of opportunities to have many exciting and engaging experiences for the children as well as high quality learning experiences. Please do look at our website to see a flavour of what we can offer your child and family, or contact us if you have any questions at all. We ensure we have visitors to extend the children's learning, sports' competitions, family events and educational visits.

Full details of our curriculum can be found on our website. We continually review it to ensure the children's learning builds over time and that they leave us with the necessary skills and knowledge to be successful in their next steps in education and in life. We also share the learning in our lessons on the website and with our families via dojo (Years 1-6) and tapestry (Reception).

We also have a twitter feed which is @ToftwoodFedera1 and we share information for parents and carers on here on a regular basis. Please do sign up to it so you don't miss out.

With very best wishes

Year R

Our child has had so much fun in Reception and I’m very happy with their report. Thank you.

Very pleased with our child’s progress and very happy their behaviour has improved. It’s lovely to read about what they enjoy at school as they don’t often say much beyond they’ve had a good day.

Thank you so much for writing a lovely and detailed report on our child! It was very personal to them which was lovely to read! Thank you for helping them grow and develop in their first year of school. They have loved every second of it. I know they will miss you all in September.

So pleased with my child’s report, so detailed in everything they have learnt this year and lovely to hear they are progressing well. Massive thank you to their teachers and TA for making their first school yea such a positive experience and they absolutely have a love of learning from this.

My child has enjoyed their time in Reception and has loved their teachers and TA. I am sure she will miss them a lot.

We are delighted to read how well our child has taken to school and how well they are learning. The personal comments from their teacher has made us smile, we appreciate the fantastic teaching they have received over this year and all the staff that have played a part in that. Bring on year 1!

Thank you so much for the great report for our child. It is lovely to hear about everything they have been doing in school and how they have progressed throughout the year. We had a little giggle about all of their questions! They are very inquisitive and has really developed and grown in confidence since starting reception and I would like to thank the teaching staff in their class and all the staff at the school for helping them flourish.

Thank you.

Thank you for the report. We found this very useful to see our child’s progress through Reception

Nice to hear that our child’s confidence is improving and that it is planned to be built on.

It was a lovely report, our child has enjoyed their first year at school! A big thank you to their teacher as they have done a great job with our child who will really miss them when they move up to Year 1.

I am really pleased with how my child has developed over their time in Reception. We will continue to encourage and support them in all that they do.

I am very pleased with my child’s report, thank you for your comments and working hard with them this year. They have enjoyed their first year at school.

It was such a lovely report to read and I feel very proud of my child. I cannot thank my child’s teacher and TA enough for being the most wonderful teachers this year. Our child says everyday how they love school and this is because of them and how fun and engaging they make it for their class. It was so lovely to read about how they’ve been at school, I even cried happy tears! Thanks again.

Report for my child was fantastic. They have had a wonderful first year at school. Excited to go to school each day and learn and has made secure and happy friendships. The adults in their class have been nothing but kind, honest and supportive. They always respond to messages on dojo and have given our child they’re hand cream every day. Although these things sound small they take a lot of effort and passion and we really appreciate it. Our child has thrived this year, they have come out of their shell and is now confident at school. Thank you to all the staff.

I just wanted to say the biggest thank you to my child’s teacher and TA for all the hard work and dedication they have provided this year. The amount of confidence which my child has gained this last academic year is such a lovely thing to see. They are excited to come to school now with no tears which I thought I’d never see. Their speech has come on amazingly and it’s so lovely to see the wealth of knowledge they have gained this year in all aspects. Again, I just want to express my gratitude into all your hard work this year. Thank you.
