Limpsfield C.E. Infant School (voluntary-aided) caters for children aged 4-7 years. Located on the A25 between Oxted and Westerham, the school is set on National trust land in the beautiful and safe setting of Limpsfield Common. It is able to use the surrounding land for sports, recreation and environmental activities, as well as an outdoor classroom.
There has been a school on this site since 1832 and within the 21st Century facilities some of the original stone walls have been retained to provide a reminder of the school’s history.
Working with the Diocese of Southwark, the school has a strong Christian ethos and has close links with St. Peter’s Church, Limpsfield. It also enjoys working with the community taking pride in the village (e.g. Limpsfield in Bloom).
The school is a Forest School (please see Forest School page for more details), with its own local forest school site, nature trail and outdoor classroom. The school also works closely with the National Trust, and is an active member of the community orchard.
As a member of the Tandridge Education Partnership, the school works in partnership with other schools and organisations to ensure that local children get the very best start in life.
A very supportive Parents’ Association (known as the Limpsfield School Association or LSA) is generous in giving both time and money. Parents are encouraged to help in numerous ways in school.
The building comprises six classrooms, library, resources/cookery room, group room, creative area, staff room, offices and a hall, also serving as a dining room.
The school has a pupil admission number (PAN) of 60 per year. Presently there are 180 pupils on roll.
Classes are arranged into two Reception, two Year 1 and two Year 2 classes. Each class has an equal mix of age, ability and gender. Reception classes have full-time teaching assistants (TAs), with KS1 have TAs every morning and sharing a TA in the afternoon.
Both in the last Ofsted Inspection (2013), and Diocesan Inspection (2017), Limpsfield School was judged to be outstanding in all areas inspected.
