All Saints C of E Infant and Pre-School - Location code R
All Saints CE Infant School is a smaller than average infant school, with 90 pupils on roll aged from 4 to 7 years. In February 2014, we opened a Pre-School in the community centre belonging to our church, All Saints, and since then have offered places to children aged from two years. Our oversubscribed school is situated in the ex-coalfield village of Huthwaite. Attainment on entry to Reception is generally well-below average, but pupils leave our school at roughly average levels.
We are among the first schools in Nottinghamshire to work with two-year-old children and are in the process of evaluating the impact of this. Recently, we were delighted to receive accreditation as an ‘Achieving Early Quality Lead School’, in association with the charity, Achievement for All. Our passion for high quality early years education means we are regularly involved in research in this area, and in the delivery of training, both in Nottinghamshire and further afield. We are graded ‘Good’ by Ofsted.
As a Voluntary Aided Church of England School, we have strong links with our church, other local church schools and the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham. Our commitment to partnership working led to our formal collaboration with Selston CE Infant and Nursery School in September 2014. You will be working in a small infant and pre-school, in a Key Stage 1 placement. A passionate and hard-working staff team will take every opportunity to support and encourage you through your training year.

Our rainbow house groups encourage children of all ages to bond, work and play together. We encourage our children to be responsible and help develop their maturity and common sense, enabling them to make the right choices. Positions of responsibility play an important and respected role within the school.
Hardworking and Ambitious
We want children to aim high and enjoy the challenge of reaching their goals, being resilient and determined enough to deal with whatever is thrown at them. We set high standards for the children, in terms of expectations, effort and attainment, and expect all children to achieve their targets and make very good progress whilst at Winthorpe. We genuinely want all children to achieve their goals and encourage them to be ambitious and aspirational with their dreams.
Respectful and Understanding
Our children are respectful, tolerant and understand others. They show this by being polite and attentive to everyone they meet. Holding doors open for others, saying good morning and listening to our friends are examples of how we can show respect on a daily basis. We respect that all people are different, in the way they look, things they believe and what is important to them. We understand that these differences make a vibrant, modern, British community, and want to celebrate and cherish these differences, and learn from them.
Confident and Curious
We encourage our children to try new things and develop a curiosity about the unknown. When we open windows onto new horizons they are given the opportunity to expand their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. We want our children to feel secure enough to try new things without fearing making a mistake. We place great emphasis on the importance of representing the school and collaborating with others and the outside world. We provide a varied range of extra-curricular activities and stimulating school trips.
