School Premiums

Pupil Premiums

The pupil premium gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from reception to year 11. It is paid to schools because they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need.

The government introduced a fund in April 2011 to give schools additional grants for:

  • every child currently registered (or at any point in the past 6 years) as eligible for free school meals
  •  looked-after or adopted children
  • leave care under a Special Guardianship Order or a Residence Order
  • children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces


PE and Sport Premium 

Primary schools are being awarded additional grants in order to improve physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

Safeguarding Children 

All the governors and staff at Fetcham Village Infant School are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all volunteers to share this commitment. This means that we adhere to our Child Protection Policy and procedures.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mrs Christine Shuman 

Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Keryn Wingrave

Message from the Chair of Governors Mrs Cath Garel

Dear Parents and Friends

I hope you find this prospectus informative and it gives you an insight into our School and School Community. However, no booklet is a substitute for a visit, so please do come and take a look.

Fetcham Village Infant School is a Values School and we pride ourselves in providing a happy, attentive and challenging learning environment for your child where he or she is cared for and valued as an individual. We do not just teach good values – we demonstrate them in all we do.

All our staff are committed to ensuring that each child develops the confidence and self- belief to achieve their ambitions and goals and the skills to evaluate and improve their own learning.

We believe that children learn best when families are involved and we are continuously looking at how we can further develop this aspect of our school life. We aim to provide frequent opportunities to keep you fully informed about your child and we hope that you will take advantage of the many opportunities there will be to visit and get involved in the different aspects of school life at Fetcham Village Infant school.

Our staff and governors work well together on our school development plan and we are constantly looking for ways to improve what we do. We have worked hard to build a good reputation with our past and present parents and have achieved good judgements from Ofsted in our last few formal inspections.  So come and see for yourselves and find out how our Values based education is working for our students and staff.

Severe Weather Procedures


Fetcham Village Infant School Severe Weather Procedure

In the event of disruption caused by heavy snow, the prime concern of the school will always be the safety of the pupils, parents and staff. The decision whether or not to send a pupil to school must be at the discretion of the parents, taking into account factors such as local road conditions.

The school aims to remain open in the event of snow.

However, there are certain factors which may lead to the school closing, such as whether: 

  • there are enough members of staff to be able to provide sufficient care; 
  • the severity of the weather conditions is on such a major scale that it is   unlikely that many people will be able physically to make it into school;
  • the school can provide lunch for the children; 
  • the school grounds are sufficiently safe for children, parents and staff;
  • the school has sufficient heating;
  • the school has lighting and water across the site; 
  • external agencies, e.g. police, local government, motoring organisations, etc, are advising against school travel in our region.   

If, for the reasons outlined above, the safest or most expedient judgement is to close the school we will post this on the website as soon as possible and leave a message on the school answer machine by 8am.
