Yatton Infant School and Yatton Church of England Junior School share a campus that is situated in the heart of Yatton. Most pupils come from Yatton; others travel from nearby hamlets and villages.
Both schools joined the Lighthouse Schools Partnership Multi Academy Trust on 1st April 2018. The Lighthouse Schools Partnership (LSP) is made up of Gordano, Backwell and Chew Valley Academies together with a wide range of Hub Primary Schools – we are in the Backwell Hub. We are excited about the benefits of this collaboration, such as improving educational continuity from primary to secondary levels, economies of scale for the provision of services and enhanced potential for the sharing of expertise and challenge between schools.
The two schools have a strong commitment to work together for the best of all the children throughout the whole primary age range. The schools share both its leadership and a Governing Body whilst respecting and celebrating the individual ethos of each school.
The Infant School has links to the Richard Durban Charitable Trust. The Trust, set up in the 18th century to educate ‘the poor of Yatton’, provides two Foundation Governors.
The Junior School is a Church of England School and has its own distinctive Christian character. The Diocese also has two governors on the Board of Governors. The school aims to provide its community with an education of the highest quality within the contexts of Christian Beliefs and Practices. We have close links with St. Mary’s Church and other local places of worship.
