Crofton Infant School

A welcome from our Head Teacher, Mrs Sargent

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am Susie Sargent, and I am proud and privileged to be the Head Teacher of both Crofton Infant and Crofton Junior School.   I am delighted to welcome you to Crofton Infant School and look forward to a long and successful relationship. 

Crofton is a very large, six form entry school, and part of the very successful Connect School Academy Trust.   As well as 540 children in our mainstream classes, we also have a specialist provision at the Infant school, providing high quality education for 18 children with severe and complex needs.   The Crofton Cubs is a private nursery which also operates within Crofton Infant School. 

Both Crofton schools have a wealth of expertise and are very well-equipped with excellent resources.  Our highly motivated staff have worked on a exciting and relevant curriculum for the children and are committed to using a variety of technology to enhance this. 

We are very lucky to have such large, green sites in an urban area, and the children have lots of space to play and to investigate our Forest School which helps children to develop a new found confidence which they can take into all areas of their lives. 

We have a very active active parents’ association, the PSA, and they work very hard organising events for both the children and parents which raise much appreciated additional funds for the school.   New members are always very warmly welcomed, so please do think about getting volunteering – it’s a great way to really become involved in the life of the school. 

At Crofton, we welcome parents to work with us to promote the high standards which we expect from the children.   Thank you for choosing to send your child to Crofton. 

There is so much more that I could share with you about life at Crofton, but what better way to learn about the schools but from the children themselves!   We  made this video to welcome children back to the school after lockdown, but I think it gives a great introduction to the school. 

Kind regards, 

Susie Sargent
