Merrow C of E Infant School

Welcome Message

We are so proud of our wonderful infant school; we have dedicated staff, supportive parents, strong governors and of course, happy, hard-working children. We want children to develop a love of learning in all ways at our school and have huge fun in doing this. Every day brings new exciting challenges and opportunities for our children both in our well resourced classrooms and our extensive outdoor environment.

At the heart of our school are the relationships we build with our children, their families and the wider community of Merrow. We take time to get to know all the children as individuals so that we can support them in reaching their fullest potential.

We offer a warm and caring environment to nurture our young children, encourage their independence and foster resilience as they grow and develop; we equip our children with the skills to be motivated and confident learners. As a Church of England school, Christian and British values form a core part of our ethos and permeate our lives at school.

We hope that our website will give you an idea of what a special, warm and welcoming school we are, or come and see for yourself by making an appointment to visit. We look forward to welcoming you to our fantastic school where children truly matter most.
