Welcome to Girnhill Infant School

On behalf of the staff, children, parents and governors we warmly welcome you to Girnhill Infant School.

“Every child matters, Every moment counts”

Respect, Responsibility, Recognition and Resilience

At Girnhill Infant School leaders are passionate that our children get the best opportunities. We believe in giving our children a curriculum that is engaging with enriching activities that foster a love of learning to enable children to succeed in life.

We provide a warm, friendly, caring, nurturing learning environment where our children are at the centre of all we do.  Our core values permeate every aspect of our school life and everyone in our school community embraces them.

From the very start of their education our children are encouraged, supported and challenged to be the best they can be; with opportunities presented to them throughout their learning journey to ignite their curiosity.

Parent Partnerships

Our doors are open! Our school community are invited to join us at annual events, such as our Christmas and Summer Fayre, Workshops, Craft Mornings, Stay and Reads and many many more.  We work hard to advertise these widely across all of our platforms. Families are always welcome to drop in, we welcome past pupils returning to share their journeys with us
