Welcome to Field Place Infant School


Field Place Infant School is in the Goring/Durrington area of Worthing.

We currently have three classes in Reception, four in Year One and four in Year Two. We have capacity for four classes in each year group and expect to grow over the next few years. The school also has a Nursery Class for 52, part-time children of 3 and over. We also have a Special Support Class for children who have an Education and Health Care Plan for speech and language difficulties.

Ofsted Says:

  • “The school offers wonderful opportunities to learn and explore, all within a safe and stimulating learning environment”

We hope your child will be very happy at our school and we look forward to working with you over the next few years. Read more...

Week Beginning 8th July 2019


All the children enjoyed transfer day last week and this forms an important part of our transition programme.  Groups of children continue to visit the Orchards over the coming fortnight, and we have further activities planned.  


This Tuesday is our Sunshine Sports Day.  The children move around a circuit of activities including a rest base.  They remain in class groups and challenge themselves in a variety of sporting skills. Please make sure your child has a PE kit in school and that their plimsols fit them. The children will be outside for up to an hour and a half, so must come to school with sun cream already applied. They will all need a sunhat as well.  We start at approximately 9.10 and should be finished by 10.30. We hope you are able to join us.


In the final week of term, Year Two have their final assembly.  In order to ensure safety, we have allocated different days for parents to attend, Wednesday 17th (Owl/Dolphin and Swan parents), Thursday 18th (Hedgehog and Fox parents).  We have realised that there is also a nursery end of year picnic on the Thursday at 1.30.  If there are any parents of children in Hedgehog or Fox class who also have children in the nursery, you are welcome to attend the Year Two final assembly on Wednesday 17th.  All the year two children are performing at both assemblies.


We are welcoming several new members of staff to the team in September, but sadly that means that some teachers and support staff are leaving us.  Three very long-standing members of staff, Mrs Stoker, Mrs Davidge and Mrs Farnes are leaving, along with Ms Wornham and Miss Newman.  We will miss them all and I am sure you would join me in thanking them for the dedication they have shown to your children this year and many children in the past. We wish them all the best for the future.

Monday 2nd September (same as the Orchards)

Tuesday 3rd September

Friday 25th October (same as the Orchards)
