Welcome from the Head – Rachel Barton

“Let all that you do be done in love.” 1 Corinthians 16:14

Our school Christian Vision

We believe in the God given uniqueness of every individual and value them within a loving and inclusive Christian community.

Through our love of God, we are all shaping our school, so that each of us can flourish, achieve, develop resilience and contribute to life in all its fullness.

Welcome to our school

A warm welcome to Littleton Church of England Nursery and Infant School set at the heart of the Littleton community. We have very strong links with St Mary Magdalene Church and we pride ourselves on our warm and inclusive Christian  learning community. We provide education for children from 3 -7 years old.

Our school is underpinned by our Christian vision and our three core values through which we explore many more specific values.

  • Care for Ourselves
  • Care for Each Other
  • Care for our World

Through our love of God

We are a learning community and we strive to develop strong and meaningful relationships for learning. Every member of our team is committed to learning and growing for the benefit of our whole school community. We have high aspirations for all our children both academically and we ensure that we educate ‘the whole child’ so that they can flourish within our school.

We place a great emphasis on ‘Learning to Learn ‘and believe that helping children to understand themselves as learners establishes a strong and positive early attitude to and love of learning. These learning skills weave through our curriculum and enable our children to leave Littleton with a positive mindset, resilience and the skills to become a successful lifelong learner.

We develop our children’s capacity to:

  • Be resilient
  • Have a growth mindset
  • Understand the power of yet ~ “I can’t do it yet…”
  • Be thoughtful, compassionate and caring
  • Have self-belief and a positive self-image
  • Care for their world
  • Be kind, considerate and tolerant
  • Understand that learning is a lifelong journey
  • Be creative, reflective and make connections
  • Make a positive difference in the world


We have a dedicated team of teaching staff who plan learning an exciting enquiry based curriculum that engages and stimulates all of our children regardless of their age and abilities. Each of our half term questions culminates in a ‘Celebration of Learning’ to which our parents are invited. We are fortunate to have school grounds that enable us to offer a Forest School curriculum and we work hard to work with ‘Learning Partners’ in our community (such as our local RSPB group) to enrich the children’s learning experiences. As a small school we are able to nurture and develop each child as a unique individual. We develop strong relationships with parents/carers and it is this strong partnership that is a strength of our school.  

  We hope this website gives a small insight into life and learning at Littleton. The best way for you to find out more about what we offer is to visit. To book a tour with the Headteacher please call the office on 01932 563271 or email
