Welcome from the Head – Rachel Barton

A warm welcome to Littleton Church of England Infant School. We are a small school with four classes set in the heart of the Littleton Community. We provide education for children from three to seven years old. Our school is underpinned by our Christian ethos and our core values:

  • Care for Ourselves
  • Care for Each Other
  • Care for our World
  • Through our love of God

We are a ‘Learning Community’ and strive at every level of the school to be reflective and committed to improving and growing as a learning organisation. We have high aspirations for all our children both academically and pastorally. We place great emphasis on ‘Learning to Learn’ and believe that this underpins becoming a successful lifelong learner. These learning skills weave through our academic curriculum and enable our children to leave Littleton with the skills that will equip them to succeed in the challenging environment of the 21st century. We develop our children’s capacity to:

  • Be resilient
  • Be thoughtful and caring
  • Have a positive self-image
  • Be critical thinkers and positive problem solvers
  • Care for their world
  • Understand that learning is a lifelong journey
  • Be creative and reflective learners
  • Make a positive difference in the world
  • Enjoy learning!

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

Littleton School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
