Pupils feel well cared for at Wyke Regis Infant School and Nursery. They say that their teachers are always cheerful and kind. The school is a welcoming place.
Teachers make all pupils feel included, regardless of their background.
The headteacher expects all pupils to be compassionate, to persevere in their work and to show respect. The great majority of pupils meet these expectations. However, a few find it difficult. Teachers work hard to help these pupils improve their behaviour. Pupils say that bullying is rare. They trust their teachers to deal with it quickly if it does happen.
Pupils are taught how to stay safe and keep themselves healthy. They enjoy running the daily mile and they play sports such as basketball and football.
Children do well in the early years. Staff ignite their imagination and children thrive. Children start learning about numbers, reading and writing right from the start. The headteacher places a high priority on reading throughout the school. Most pupils learn to read confidently. This sets them up well for when they move on from the school at the end of Year 2.
