Lenthall Infant & Nursery School

Our School

On behalf of all the children, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to our school website. It is designed to give you a flavour of our school and is packed with information that we hope you will find both useful and informative.

Lenthall Infant and Nursery School is a small community infant and nursery school, with children aged  between three to seven, situated in Dronfield. At the age of seven, the majority of our children transfer to local Junior Schools with whom we have a close liaison as part of the Partnership of Dronfield Schools (PODS).

The school buildings are calm and spacious and supplemented by a large, hard-surfaced playground,  allotment area and class gardens which are well used for learning across our Lenthall curriculum. Within our expansive school grounds, we are also fortunate to have  a Forest School dedicated area and willow structures where we enjoy relaxing and spendign time with our friends.

Our large grounds, ensure that all of our children benefit from outdoor education as part of their curriculum. Our grounds must be seen to be believed! 

The School has an Early Years Unit, with provision for three-year-olds. The Nursery also makes good use of our extensive facilities in school including our sensory rooms, nurture room, hall and Library or 'Book Nook' as we like to call it. We are also excitedly converting one of our rooms into a therapeutic classroom which we hope will be ready for the 24/25 academic year - we can't wait to unveil and use it...

We look forward to welcoming you to our school!

Our opening and closing times are 8:45am - 3:15pm which totals 32.4 hours a week. If childcare is required outside of school hours, then our After School Children's Club operates from 7.30 am to 6.00 pm.
