Welcome to our school

A very warm welcome to Southbourne Infant School.
We are a happy school with a dedicated team of staff and governors, well-behaved, lively and interested children, supportive parents/carers and beautiful surroundings that we share with the Junior School. We have so much to offer you and your children!

We are a fully inclusive school and throughout your child’s time with us, no matter how short or long, there is a strong emphasis on independence, respect and a desire to learn. Our school Vision and Values are in evidence  throughout the school;

At Southbourne Infants we ‘Follow the Rainbow.’

We are proud of our children’s achievements and the many ways in which they are prepared for the challenges of life and the world around them. When you visit, you will meet polite, well behaved children with a thirst for knowledge.

Here are some quotes from our recent OFSTED Report, which we feel truly reflects our school;

“Due to consistently good teaching pupils make good progress throughout the school.”

“Consistently good teaching, maintained since the last inspection, continues to strengthen so

pupils’ attainment continues to rise.”

“In the Early Years Foundation Stage a wide range of opportunities help children to learn through

play and investigation, both inside and outside the classroom.”

“The school’s ‘Forest School’ programme makes a significant contribution to pupils’ spiritual,

moral, social and cultural development”

“The school is a caring and orderly community where all pupils are included in everything the

school has to offer.”

“Staff and pupils share good relationships that support pupils’ positive attitudes and enjoyment in



Best Wishes
