Banstead Infant School is a school within the Oaks Academy Trust We established a multi-academy trust in April 2014 with Warren Mead Junior School because we are passionate about learning and wanted to build a family of schools to provide an outstanding education for our children. We believe that by working in close partnership with other schools our children, staff and school communities benefit from excellent and inspirational teaching, learning and leadership.

Banstead Infant School was built in 1989. The teaching areas surround an atrium, which is a large paved area with a glazed roof. In the main school building there are eight teaching bases are arranged in three units; each one has a practical and quiet area shared by the classes in that unit. There is a hall/gymnasium with purpose built floor surface, library/resource area and administrative offices. One Year 2 class has a new classroom opposite the main building. This has its own toilets, cloakroom and practical area. The school has its own grounds consisting of a playground, woodland walk, gardens, outside classroom and a pond. The school day starts at 8.50am, with the register being taken at 9.00am. There is a morning playtime from 10.40am-11.00am Lunch is from 12.00pm to 1.35pm and the day ends at 3.20pm.

There are 270 children in the school ranging from four to seven years old.

Children, including high achievers and those with special educational needs, are taught as a whole class, often in small groups, and also as individuals, providing them with appropriate learning situations according to their age and stage of learning. You can find out more about how we meet the needs of children who have special educational needs here.
