Welcome to our school..

Welcome to South Molton Community Infant School. We are a small rural infant school situated in the market town of South Molton. We look forward to a long and happy association with you and your family. At our school everyone learns how to learn and children of all abilities experience success. This is achieved by working in partnership with parents, whose involvement, support and understanding is vital for the continued success of the children at our school. To support parents we offer an extended schools programme enabling wrap around care for children from 8am till 5.45pm.

Our beautiful grounds enhance our learning environment and are used for sports and environmental studies. We encourage outdoor learning throughout the children’s time in school, with every child taking part in a forest school session each week and a comprehensive sports programme.

This website will give you a flavour of the education we can offer your child and we invite you to visit us to experience the very special atmosphere of South Molton Community Infant School. We are very proud of our children and staff and are keen for you to see us in action.

Colour and Light Evening..

As part of our topic the children came back to school in the evening to experience a night of ‘Colour and Light’. The children attended with torches and excitement. They hunted for images of nocturnal animals using their torches, which linked with our topic work in the classroom. After hotdogs and a sing-song around the camp fire we spotted stars in the autumn night sky.

Our evening finished with hot chocolate, fireworks and a sparkler for every child. It was enjoyed by us all!

Parents Feedback following the evening...

“Lovely ambience around the fire, children were comfortable and confident. Lovely to hear the singing and see the smiles on parents faces, priceless!! Hotdogs, cakes and drinking chocolate were much appreciated, as were the fireworks. Children enjoyed the nocturnal adventure with their torches in the dark. Well done and thank you!”

“It was an excellent evening. The staff have gone well beyond what is expected. Jake loved the fireworks. His younger brother was included too and this will make it a lot easier for him when he starts school. Thank you for all your time and effort. It is really appreciated. Jake learnt what nocturnal animals were”.
