"Working together, valuing and nurturing children"

Welcome!! Shaw Cross Infant and Nursery is a friendly and caring school. Our staff and governors take pleasure and pride in helping children to develop into confident and happy learners. We take our responsibility very seriously as we want to give children the best possible start to their education and equip them with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to succeed in their future lives. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school. We place a strong emphasis on developing the personal well being of each child as we feel that this provides the foundation for successful learning. We have developed strong links with other agencies and community groups, including our colleagues at the Chickenley, Earlsheaton and Shawcross Children's Centre to support us in our work. We liaise closely with local schools as we believe by working together we can make a positive impact on the lives of the children, young people and their families within our community.

We hope that these pages will be informative and provide you with a taste of what we have to offer.

Mrs Janet Drury, Headteacher
