Headteacher’s Welcome

Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to our Federation! Trosnant Infant and Junior Schools are thriving and popular schools, providing high quality primary education for all children and their families at the heart of the community in the Leigh Park area of Havant. This all begins with our ‘Outstanding’ Early Years provision (OFSTED January 2017).

At Trosnant, our federation’s values are based on a positive ‘Growth-Mindset’ approach to life and learning. This means that we: 

* Encourage children to go for goals

* Promote the importance of resilience 

* Offer wide ranging opportunities through our Curriculum

* Develop a strong sense of working together 

underpinned by a culture of mutual respect. 

This is captured by our Values Tree:

Both our schools have been rated overall as ‘Good’ schools by OFSTED.

“Everyone at Trosnant Infant School has the highest aspirations for all pupils. Since the previous inspection, the shared values have been fully embedded and an air of determination to achieve well permeates the school. As the school’s motto states, Trosnant is a place where everyone respects each other and grows together.”

“Teachers demonstrate good subject knowledge across the curriculum and use this to plan activities that are fun and relevant. Teachers ensure that lessons are purposeful and that pupils participate and contribute well. As a result, pupils enjoy learning and make good progress.”

OFSTED Report, Trosnant Infant School January 2017

“Staff have a deep understanding of pupils’ emotional, behavioural and learning needs. They have very high expectations of pupils’ behaviour and learning and treat pupils with respect. Pupils thrive in their care, making remarkable progress in developing the personal skills and self-esteem required to learn successfully.”

“Your school’s friendly, inclusive atmosphere ensures the pupils feel valued and welcomed. Pupils want to do well and work hard. They speak about their school and their accomplishments with pride.”

OFSTED Report, Trosnant Junior School March 2017

As children progress through the schools we have strong links with our local secondary schools which ensures effective transition when the time comes for our children to move on to the next stage of their education.

We also benefit from having an independent local Nursery on our site, working in close partnership to ensure a successful and happy transition for those children joining our infant school from the beginning.

We are proud of our school, it’s evolving, exciting and engaging curriculum, effective and engaging teaching, a focus on core skills and the offer of a wide range of unique opportunities. The staff and governors have high expectations for our children ensuring everyone can achieve their best, within a caring, nurturing and inclusive environment, which recognises the individuality of each child.

Our schools have a wide range of well qualified staff, including:

the Executive Deputy Headteacher, who is responsible for the day to day management of both our schools; the Assistant Headteacher responsible for Inclusion and who is also our Special Needs Co-ordinator; a Home School Liaison Officer; a Pupil Support and Guidance Manager; Emotional Literacy Support Assistants; trained Thrive and Nurture Practitioners; a Sports Co-ordinator; a Mental Health and Well-Being Lead; a teacher with responsibility for our most able children and Lead Practitioner for Teaching and Learning- all of whom work alongside classroom staff to ensure the needs of all our children are well met.

We also commission services to provide our federation with mental health support, educational psychology and speech therapy.

We have a long history as schools who care for the ‘whole child ‘and their families. We provide an early bird breakfast club for working parents, morning toast for any child who needs it to start their day and a range of after school clubs including sports clubs and Study Support.

Our schools have also benefited from building projects that has provided us with fantastic new learning environments and facilities.

We are pleased that we have been able to reopen our schools to all pupils post COVID-19 closures, having remaining open throughout for certain groups. We still have a comprehensive risk assessment in place which is published on this website. We also have made detailed COVID Recovery plans to ensure all our pupils catch up and keep up and are fully supported in terms of both their learning and well-being.  

I hope this website gives an insight into our schools, and provides you with useful information. However, please contact us if you require further information, have any queries or questions or would like to visit us.
