At Hamstel Infant School and Nursery we value the individuality of all our children and we celebrate that individuality. 

We are highly committed to giving each child, every opportunity to achieve the highest of standards.  We do this by taking account of pupils' varied life experiences and individual needs and by offering a broad and balanced curriculum with high expectations of everybody within our school.


Our inclusion practices help to ensure that the school promotes the individuality of our children, irrespective of ethnicity, attainment, age, disability, gender or background. 


The achievements, attitudes and well-being of every single child, matters at Hamstel Infant School and Nursery. We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school that actively seeks to remove the barriers to learning. We give each child the opportunity to succeed and reach their highest levels of personal achievement, while providing all children with a nurturing environment and a safe base from which they can feel safe and secure.
