Welcome to Ruskin Infant and Nursery School

Ruskin Infant School and Nursery is a three form entry Infant School for 2-7 year olds, situated in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. We provide wide and varied high quality learning experiences within a nurturing environment.

Teachers have high expectations and plan imaginative and stimulating lessons that motivate pupils to learn.  Children behave well and are encouraged to do so through various reward schemes. Learning is enriched through a wide range of after-school activities and first hand experiences which support pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We have adopted initiatives such as the ‘Massage in Schools Programme’ and ‘Relax Kids’ to develop pupils’ emotional and social skills so that they are ready to learn and make good progress in their lessons. 

Our Forest School utilises nature based learning to provide a different context to education. In this environment children develop a range of skills, from emotional wellbeing to problem solving skills, alongside cross curricular links that transfer back to the classroom. These experiences provide children with a foundation toward a life-long relationship with outdoor spaces. 

We aim to ensure that every child leaves Ruskin Infant School and Nursery with a love of learning and are determined to succeed. We want to equip them with confidence, resilience and a passion for respect and equality. These qualities will enable them to thrive and to advocate kindness and fairness in their future lives. Ruskin Infant School and Nursery fosters a nurturing learning environment where well-being is a high priority. Adults and children are valued for themselves and treat each other with mutual kindness, respect and understanding. Good behaviour is recognised and rewarded and underpins all that we want to achieve for our pupils. Our school values an atmosphere that enables staff and pupils to develop individually to their full potential by valuing their strengths and building on them.
