Welcome to our School


Welcome to Overdale Infant School!

At Overdale Infant School, we pride ourselves on nurturing each child’s unique potential. Our mission statement, ‘Lighting the hearts and minds of our community,’ highlights our commitment to providing a secure, friendly, and innovative learning environment where every child can flourish. We recognise and value the individuality of each child, and our dedicated staff are committed to supporting their academic, personal, social, and emotional development.

We have very high academic standards and ensure that skills are taught within a creative and challenging, curriculum that is tailored to meet the needs of every learner. Our goal is to inspire creativity and imagination while ensuring that each child receives the necessary skills and knowledge to thrive in the future.

Collaboration between home and school is essential to a child’s success, and we greatly value the partnership with our parents and carers. By working together, we can create a positive and enriching educational experience for your child. We encourage parental involvement in school life and believe that celebrating our children’s achievements together strengthens our community.

We are particularly proud of the care, support, guidance and achievements of everyone who belongs here. We work in close partnership with other schools and external agencies across our vibrant city to ensure that each and every child has the best possible opportunity to enjoy and succeed whilst at Overdale Infant School.

Overdale Infant School is more than just a place of learning; it’s a hub of community engagement. We are proud to be part of a wonderful, diverse community and we actively participate in local initiatives, supporting charities and fostering intergenerational connections with our neighbours.

As part of the OAK Academies Trust, we benefit from a collaborative network of schools committed to delivering high-quality research informed education across all age groups. This partnership ensures continuity and excellence in education from early years to secondary school.

If you choose to send your child to Overdale Infant School, we very much look forward to working in partnership with you, and you can be confident that he or she will receive an excellent education in a safe, stimulating and exciting environment.

For more information about our school, please explore our website or feel free to reach out to our office with any questions you may have.

We are proud to be part of a successful school community, where enthusiasm radiates from our children, parents, staff, and governors.
