Welcome to our school.
Glenfield Infant School was established in 1954 and is situated in Bitterne, Southampton and provides for 4 - 7 year olds in a secure, safe, well-organised and happy environment.
We currently have a capacity for 270 children, aged from 4 to 7 years old organised into 9 classes. Class sizes will not exceed 30 children.
The school is set in woodland, complete with a nature trail, allotments and wildlife garden. The children use the grounds as an extended learning environment and find great enjoyment in growing their own vegetables. We also have an adventure playground which the children use under supervision on a rotational basis.
At our latest OFSTED inspection in October 2021 our grading of GOOD was upheld.
GLENFIELD IS A NUT & SESAME FREE SCHOOL (everyday) and ON MONDAY & TUESDAY WE ARE ALSO EGG FREE. This is because we have children/staff with severe allergies requiring an Epi-Pen.
This is what we value most and aim to have at the heart of everything we do:
Aims and Achievements
We all encourage and participate in a healthy lifestyle. This includes eating healthy snacks (Fruit or vegetables are provided FREE for all children) drinking water during the school day and the formulation of a travel plan which encourages people to walk to school rather than the use of cars.
