Bournes Green Infant School

Our Vision

At Bournes Green Infant School the governors, staff, children, parents and carers work together in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust in a community that is strengthened and enriched by a diversity of background, culture and religion.  Our priority is to foster the self-confidence, self-esteem and independence of all in a climate of growth and opportunity that will enable us to achieve the highest standards.  We actively promote a healthy environment in which children enjoy learning and develop the skills needed to become responsible members of society.  We aim to bring learning to life.

We are situated in a residential area, very near to a busy and popular seaside resort, Southend-on-Sea, on the River Thames estuary.

In the grounds of the school we have lots of tall trees and grassed areas, a playground, a tyre park and two fantastic wooden adventure areas.

We have 182 children on roll, aged from 4 to 7 years and our classes are arranged as follows:

Two parallel Year 2 classes – ages 6 and 7

Blue and Red Units

Two parallel Year 1 classes – ages 5 and 6

Green and Yellow Units

Two parallel Reception classes – ages 4 and 5

Orange and Purple Units

Children join the school in September at the start of the school year in which they are 5 and spend 3 years with us.   Bournes Green Junior School is just next door!
