Description of the school

Tolworth is a bigger than average infant school. It is situated in the residential area of Tolworth, Surbiton and is adjacent to a neighbouring junior school. Over a third of the pupils are learning English as an additional language and a high proportion are at an early stage of English acquisition. There are 28 different languages spoken in the school. Thirteen pupils are refugees or asylum seekers and 42% are from minority ethnic groups. A significant number of pupils join the school other than in the Nursery and Reception classes. Around a quarter of the pupils have learning difficulties and/or disabilities, of whom 11 have statements of special educational needs. The school has two areas of specialist resource provision for pupils with moderate to severe learning difficulties. The Nursery provision, known as The Lighthouse, has three children attending currently. The Reception/Key Stage 1 provision, known as The Harbour, has seven pupils on roll.
