Welcome to Writtle Infant School

Our children, staff and governors wish you a very warm welcome to Writtle Infant School. We value our place at the heart of our village community and are committed to offering a learning experience that is challenging, enjoyable and achievable. We place the mental health and happiness of each child and their family at the heart of everything we do. Together with you, we establish the foundations for your child’s life-long learning skills and nurture the personal qualities which benefit both them and the wider community. We expect all our children to respect and work co-operatively with others, so that everyone feels safe, confident, happy and equal: “A very special place, where learning has no limits.

We hope you find our website informative, but please contact us if you have any further questions, or would like to visit the school.

Coronavirus / Covid-19

It is absolutely essential that if your child or any member of your household displays symptoms of Covid-19, you must all self-isolate and get a test for the person with symptoms. Symptoms are:

  • a high temperature – feeling hot to touch on your chest or back (you don’t need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hrs (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – noticing you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell / taste different to normal

If a child is tested, the school must be informed of the result of the test. If it is positive, NHS Test and Trace will advise you of your next steps. If the test is negative then children may return to school.
