Learning Partners Academy Trust is made up of twelve state schools; we have two infant and nursery schools, one junior school, five all-through primary schools and four secondary schools. Each school has its own unique character and approach, based on its deep understanding and knowledge of the local communities that it serves. Whilst we provide robust central support and endeavour to build strong networks enabling professionals to work collaboratively, we also embrace and champion our schools' individual strengths and abilities to meet the needs of every child in our trust.

Shalford Infant and Nursery School
Shalford Infant & Nursery School is a small, village school, with just four classes, providing education for children from two to seven years old. We promise a special experience which is to be treasured and remembered. We aim to provide teaching and learning which inspires, motivates and engages all children to become life-long learners.
Our driving force is our vision of 'Enjoying Learning Together'. This can be seen every morning when the children rush into school with smiling faces, eager to learn. The talented team of teaching staff plan a curriculum that provides memorable experiences and purposeful activities that engage children of all ages and abilities. With just four classes, every child is special to us, and we get to know our pupils and families very well, developing strong relationships that work for the benefit of the children.
We all enjoy learning together here at Shalford and academic success is high, the results and outcomes our children achieve are higher than national averages and Surrey averages, but we know that this is only one part of what will make them successful in their lives. We recognise that they must also master other skills to really thrive in the future. Skills such as problem-solving, how to be calm, have self-awareness and self-control, how to keep trying even when things go wrong, to have a positive outlook on life and believe that they themselves have the power to make changes in their own lives, to be kind to other people and look to add happiness to the world and find positives in the challenges they will face.
We are a values led learning school, we explicitly teach children a set of values, which enable them to be the very best person that they can be. These values are like a golden thread that runs through the school, encompassing all that we do here. Thoughtfulness, honesty, empathy, tolerance and courage are just a few of the values that children and staff live by every day.
We have high expectations of all children and of our staff, but not at the expense of well-being. We believe that children should leave our school independent, happy and secure in who they are, with our school values packed in their invisible rucksacks, ready to take with them on the next step of their education journey.
