Welcome to Busbridge Infant School

We are a two form entry infant school, offering high quality education to boys and girls aged 4 to 7 years. Our school is situated on a large site, on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to Godalming.

The school is rated Outstanding by Ofsted, which said in its last full inspection: “Busbridge Infant school is a very special place. The whole experience is designed to help children to make the vital transition from a play-oriented environment to an academic curriculum. This is done with immense passion and care.” (Read Ofsted’s full report, and its subsequent interim report.)

We are proud of these high standards and work hard to maintain them. We provide a happy and safe learning environment – a stimulating setting where each individual is inspired and flourishes. We aim to equip all our children with the essential skills and tools that will set them on the road to lifelong success.

Our values

The culture of the school is founded on five main values:

  1. Care: being kind, gentle, helpful, polite, considerate.
  2. Ambition: trying hard, being determined, resilient, persevering, taking risks, personal motivation, application.
  3. Responsibility: for learning and actions, reflecting and improving, being honest and independent.
  4. Enjoyment: love of learning, curiosity, positivity, optimism, enthusiasm, confidence.
  5. Respect: for other people, as well as for property.
Infant school is the start of your child's formal education. Our staff and governors are passionate about, and committed to, ensuring your child is happy, safe, learns and grows; and that they are ready, by the end of Key Stage 1, for their next step to Junior School. Our vision and motto – "Turning little steps into confident strides" – embodies this. It is reflected in the school day, the curriculum and our school policies.

We benefit from terrific support and partnerships with parents, carers, our neighbours and other schools in the area. We are particularly grateful for the active role of parents through the PTA in raising valuable funds for the school, and helping to create a warm and friendly school community through a series of events throughout the year.

Do come and see for yourself – visits to the school are most welcome and we look forward to hearing from you on 01483 417 898.

Are you feeling uncertain about whether to send your child to school - perhaps because your child is feeling unwell; or you've been contacted by NHS Test and Trace; or a member of your household has tested positive for Covid-19?  Here’s a handy guide to refer to: Covid info for parents.
