Crosshall Infant School Academy

Crosshall Infant School was opened in May 1974. The buildings have been extensively remodelled and extended.  The operational capacity of the school is 120 children in each year group, totalling 360. There are four classes in each year group. One of the Year 2 classes is situated in a free-standing, independent building, which also houses the computer suite. The Nursery has the capacity to take 78 children and they  are accommodated in a purpose-built nursery building at the front of the school.

Each teaching area is semi-open plan with individual class ‘bays’ and a central practical area shared by all four classes. The flexibility of this area means that it can be used for a variety of activities applicable to all children’s needs.

In addition, the school has resource rooms, a kiln room, a music room, a purpose-built children’s kitchen and a main hall which also serves as a dining hall. The school has use of a hygiene suite and a small hall, both of which are shared with Crosshall Junior School. There are also offices and a reception area.

The grounds provide a variety of different landscaped areas to encourage safe and happy play. This includes an adventure playground, a pirate ship, a train, a cycling/running track, a stage area, a ‘quiet’ garden, a ‘magic’ garden at the front of the school and areas for different types of play.

The out-of-school ‘Kids Club’ is situated on the school site. This operates before and after-school in the term time and throughout the holidays. Kids Club provides before and after-school care for children in the Infant School and day care for children of 3 to 4 years of age.
