A welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to Odessa Infant School. Our website aims to give you a snapshot of our school, as well as providing important information for the whole school community. We hope that you enjoy your visit and find the website informative and helpful.

As a school, we are committed to providing the very best learning opportunities for your child in a safe, secure and friendly community environment. As part of our commitment to raising standards, we are excited to deliver a bespoke curriculum linked to the full statutory national curriculum. We have a very strong focus on reading skills as we believe that the ability to read and enjoy opens the door to every other aspect of learning.

There is no limit to how well all pupils can achieve. We have the highest expectations for all of our children, and as a school, we expect them to aim high and to achieve their full potential. We feel it is important that pupils at Odessa achieve academically as well as developing their personal and social skills, both in and out of school. We have a strong belief in good behaviour and good manners with an emphasis on caring for each other and taking on responsibility.

As a school we really value our strong relationships with parents and carers and strive to work in partnership to ensure the best possible outcomes for our children.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find it informative and helpful.

If you would like to arrange a visit to our school, please contact the main office.
