Our school was founded in 1707 and has been a well-established school for over 300 years. We are an Infant and Nursery school, linked with Shinfield St. Mary’s C.E. Junior School. The schools are part of a close knit and vibrant community in Shinfield village, and we have many links with this and the wider world around us.
We aim for all children to fulfil their potential and our school mission statement includes the line ‘Everyone shining in their own field’. This not only comes from the water meadows around Shinfield that give it the ‘shining field’ name, but also from our whole school approach to ensuring that each child does his or her best.
Children can start in Nursery when 3 years old and can either attend the morning or afternoon session. we offer a number of 30 hour funded places for those who are eligible. There are three classes in F2,Year 1 and Year 2. The number on roll is 322 for school and Nursery, with a planned admission number of 90 children.
The school site has recently an expansion and extensive refurbishment to include a large new playground and field, spacious new hall, three new classrooms, a small group work room and hygiene room.
