Headteacher's Welcome

Trosnant Infant and Junior Schools are thriving and popular schools providing high quality primary education for all children and their families at the heart of the community in the Leigh Park area of Havant. This all begins with our 'Outstanding' Early Years provision (OFSTED January 2017).

Our schools are federated, led effectively by the Governing Body, Executive Headteacher and Federated Leadership Team, providing a continuous learning journey for our children throughout their primary education from four to eleven and operating as a 'virtual primary school'.

At Trosnant our core values are based on a 'Growth Mindset' approach to life and learning. This means that we all go for goals, promote the importance of resilience, offer wide ranging opportunities and develop a strong sense of working together, all underpinned by a culture of mutual respect. This is captured by our Values Tree:

 

We also benefit from having an independent local Nursery on our site, working in close partnership to ensure a successful and happy transition for those children joining our infant school from the beginning.

Both our schools have been recently rated overall as 'Good' schools by OFSTED.

"Everyone at Trosnant Infant School has the highest aspirations for all pupils. Since the previous inspection, the shared values have been fully embedded and an air of determination to achieve well permeates the school. As the school's motto states, Trosnant is a place where everyone respects each other and grows together."

"Teachers demonstrate good subject knowledge across the curriculum and use this to plan activities that are fun and relevant. Teachers ensure that lessons are purposeful and that pupils participate and contribute well. As a result, pupils enjoy learning and make good progress."

OFSTED Report, Trosnant Infant School January 2017

"Staff have a deep understanding of pupils' emotional, behavioural and learning needs. They have very high expectations of pupils' behaviour and learning and treat pupils with respect. Pupils thrive in their care, making remarkable progress in developing the personal skills and self-esteem required to learn successfully."

"Your school's friendly, inclusive atmosphere ensures the pupils feel valued and welcomed. Pupils want to do well and work hard. They speak about their school and their accomplishments with pride."

As children progress through the school the inspectors recognise that we also have strong links with our local secondary schools which ensures effective transition when the time comes for our children to move on to the next stage of their education.

We are proud of our school, it's evolving, exciting and engaging curriculum, improving and engaging teaching, a focus on core skills and the provision of a wide range of other opportunities. The staff and governors have high expectations for our children ensuring everyone can indeed achieve their best, within a caring, nurturing and inclusive environment, which recognises the individuality of each child.  Our personalised and creative curriculum encourages learners to:

Our schools have a wide range of well qualified staff, including two dedicated Heads of School, a full time Special Needs Co-ordinator, a Home School Liaison Officer, a Pupil Support Manager, a Specialist Reading Teacher, Emotional Literacy Support Assistants, Thrive and Nurture, a teacher with responsibility for our most able children and a Lead Practitioner for Teaching and Learning – all of whom work alongside classroom staff to ensure the needs of all our children are met.

We also have a long history as schools who care for the 'whole child 'and their families. We provide a free breakfast club to any child who wants to use it, 'Early-Bird' care for working parents and a range of after school clubs including Study Support.

I hope this website gives an insight into our schools, and provides you with useful information. However please contact us if you require further information or have any queries or questions.
