Description of the school

Most of the pupils attending Ditton Infants are from White British families. The few pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds speak English well. Children join the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) into Reception either at the start of the school year in September, or in the following January. Numbers at the school have begun to rise and this means that a second Reception class is now formed to accommodate the January intake. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is below average and a wide range of needs is represented within this small group. Two new class teachers have joined the school recently, one during last school year and one at the start of this term.
