The modern on-site facilities include:
- Two outdoor playgrounds (covered for wet / shady play)
- Two indoor covered playgrounds for Nursery and Reception

- Interactive whiteboards are available in all classrooms

The well-equipped Foundation Stage classrooms (Nursery and Reception) come complete with independent bathrooms and direct access to play areas. The Infant playground has high-quality play equipment and safety surfaces.
Every classroom is equipped with state-of-the-art interactive whiteboards and wifi internet connection.
Training is regularly provided to all staff to ensure that teaching and learning are up-to-date with the latest developments.
Every classroom has its own computing provision. Pupils benefit from a range of early years software packages in the Nursery where they begin to develop basic computer skills such as mouse control. A typical programme, like Sound Stories (from the Oxford Literacy Web) will be introduced to the whole class at one time.
Children then have the opportunity to practice their skills in an interactive and stimulating environment, usually working in pairs with their teacher or learning assistant. Sound, colour and animation all help to captivate a child’s interest in computing right from the start of their education at King’s Infant School.
Physical Education forms an integral part of the curriculum at the school and is also a major area of extra-curricular activity. It is considered a healthy way to develop pupils’ physical competence and confidence. It also promotes physical skills, physical development and knowledge of the body in action. Physical education provides opportunities for pupils to be creative, competitive and to face up to different challenges as individuals and in groups and teams. It promotes positive attitudes towards active and healthy lifestyles. Pupils at King’s Infant School can enjoy classes such as rhythmic gymnastics, judo, swimming, inline skating and many more.
We also have a school climbing wall for pupils to enjoy and practice their agility skills. As well as these, more opportunities for sport become available as pupils progress through the school, and there is a wide range of extra-curricular and optional classes available to students. Sports activities are also available to all students at break times.
