‘Our community is important to us and we are important to our community.’
Our school does not stand alone in isolation but is part of a bigger and interlinked school community made up of groups in school such as our school council, as well as groups outside school such as Puttenham village, our four united Parishes, other schools such as our feeder school Waverley Abbey Junior School, our Church and our School Association (PSA).
Our parents, children, staff and governors come together to make our school a happy, safe and beautiful place to be. Several times a year we work together on Groundforce days to tidy up the school grounds.

Along with other infant schools in the area we work to enrich and broaden our children’s knowledge and learning, including valuable transition projects for year 2 as they prepare to move on to year 3 at Waverley Abbey.
