'Pupils enjoy learning at Limes Farm Infant and Nursery School. They are polite and welcoming. Pupils develop positive relationships with each other and with staff. They say that they feel safe in the school. It is a happy place to be. Many parents share this view, saying the school has a ‘warm manner’ and that children come home happy. Staff have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Pupils understand these expectations and behave well around the school. There is a calm atmosphere. Pupils are rarely unkind to each other but when this happens, pupils say that staff deal with it quickly. Teachers put this right. Through the personal, social and health education (PSHE) curriculum content, in lessons and through other activities, pupils develop their awareness of culture and diversity. Children in the early years, for example, worked on activities which celebrate Diwali. The school’s recent ‘diversity day’ saw pupils come to school wearing clothes which celebrated their culture. Pupils have opportunities to help others in the school. At playtimes, well-being ambassadors look after those who might need help or want someone to play with. They say it is about ‘being kind’.'

Welcome to Limes Farm Infant School and Nursery, my name is Miss Taylor and I am delighted to be the Headteacher of our fantastic School. I have worked at Limes Farm Infant School since 2012 with over ten years of experience in a number of different Roles including, Class Teacher, Early Years Leader, NQT Mentor, Subject Leader, Deputy Headteacher and also a Specialist Leader in Education, specialising in Phonics and the Early Years Curriculum.
The satisfaction of seeing children develop and progress makes my job a most rewarding one. I believe that all children have the capacity to learn and achieve their full potential if given the right learning opportunities and experiences. At our School we strongly believe in Growth Mindset, and that we always have a go and try our best even if we make mistakes. It is these mistakes that we use to continue to learn and build upon. With these attitudes embedded across the school we develop happy, successful and resilient young children.
I know that here at Limes Farm we all have the ability, drive and mind set to make a positive difference to all of our children’s education. We are ambitious,fun and creative, whilst providing the children with a broad and balanced curriculum to enrich their lives. We provide them with a happy, safe environment in which we can instill in them a love of learning.
Limes Farm Infant School and Nursery is certainly a happy place to be, where positive wellbeing is fundamental for all. We all ensure that the children and staff feel that they ‘Belong, learn and enjoy!’
I look forward to working together with you, to ensure that we achieve the best possible outcomes for each and every child.
Limes Farm Infant School and Nursery is part of the Epping Forest Schools Partnership Trust.
Epping Forest Schools Partnership Trust is a Multi-Academy Trust which consists of 16 schools: 11 primary schools, 3 infant schools, 1 junior school and 1 special school. Our schools vary in size from a three form entry primary school to a single form entry infant school. Our special school, Oak View, is an all age (3-19), specialist provision for pupils with Special Educational Needs. This includes those with severe and complex needs and pupils within the autistic spectrum.
This School and Nursery admits children from the ages of 3 –7 years of age. At our School we teach both the Foundation Stage and National Curriculum Key Stage One. We are a two form entry school.
Children can start the Nursery in the term after their 3rd birthday. They enter the Infant School in the September of the academic year in which they are 5.
We have been consistently graded as a ‘Good’ school by OFSTED, the latest inspection being in October 2022.
Of course a website can only give you a slight glimpse of our school. There’s so much more to see.
