On behalf of myself and the school, I'd like to welcome you to our school website.
I am delighted to share this video telling you more about our school.
Our children and the community that works with Raunds Park Infant School are incredible. We pride ourselves on being a friendly, welcoming and fun school, where children enjoy coming to school to learn through a wide range of experiences and an amazing curriculum. Our school is a small school, with only 5 classes, ranging from age 4 to 7 (EYFS to Year 2) meaning that our environment is small and caring; our staff work hard to ensure children love school and develop a lifelong love for learning. On 1st June 2019 we converted to an academy and are proud to have joined the Nene Education Trust. For more information about the trust please follow this link. The trusts accounts can be found here.
We are driven by our 6 core Values, which feed into all that we do:
- Friendship / Kindness
We believe that by showing these Values and teaching the children to embrace these as they develop, we can help children to become outstanding members of the community - these Values are for life, not just for the school year.
If you would like to come to school to see us in action or require any further information, please speak myself or Melanie Vaughan in the office. Paper copies of any information on the website are available from the office.

Testimonials from Parents
Our child loves being at Raunds Park Infant School. It is a safe environment where she is well cared for, this has enabled her to thrive in her learning. The teachers and staff go above and beyond for all the children and I would happily recommend this school to other parents as an excellent place for kids to learn and grow. (March 2022)
Our oldest son joined Raunds Park Infant School at the beginning of Year 1, in September 2020, after struggling at a previous school. Since he joined Raunds Park, he has grown so much! He has become more confident, better behaved and began to excel. This is testament to how brilliant this School is - he went from not wanting to go to school to loving it!
Our youngest joined this year in Reception and we are amazed at how well he has learned to read and write and how excited he is to go to this school.
The teachers at Raunds Park Infants are brilliant and will always communicate everything we need to know and will sort out issues straight away.
Thank you for all your hard work.

My daughter began her first year at Park Infants in 2016. When we began to look for schools, we found the task quite daunting and didn’t quite feel like the schools we had looked at were a good enough fit for us. Then we walked into Park Infants. We immediately felt as though we were in the right place. The school has a small ‘village school’ feel rather than a busy town school which immediately made the environment feel more personal. The classrooms are well set out and we especially liked that the reception classes had shared areas outside and indoors where they could mix. Forging relationships is so important at this age group and we felt this would be hugely beneficial to our child. This layout made the transition from nursery to school almost seamless for our child. She thrived during her time at Park Infants and I found the staff so helpful and welcoming.
Fast forward to 2020 and our son began his journey at Park Infants. There was no need to look at other schools because we already knew that this environment would be perfect for him. The pandemic made this first year extremely challenging and he spent most of the year home learning. Despite this, the teaching staff at Park made sure that the children were organised with tasks, enjoyed regular online learning and the teachers were on hand via email and phone whenever we needed them. Our son is also thriving at Park Infants, and he enjoys every day at school and can’t wait to tell us all about it when he arrives home.
In summary, we would without doubt recommend Park Infants to any prospective parents. If you’re looking for a calm environment with hands on teaching staff that will always have your child’s best interests at heart, then this school fits the bill.
