Pocklington C.E. (VC) Infant School


We currently have six classes, all named after Woodland creatures.  Foundation stage (Reception) are Owls and Squirrels.  KS1 are Hedgehogs and Foxes (Year 1) Moles and Badgers (Year 2).

Drinking Bottles

Children are encouraged to have their own names water bottle (containing plain water only) which they may use throughout the day.


We endeavour to make playtime fun, with a variety of different opportunities for play, including:

  • shelter for quite activities
  • tyre park
  • adventure playground
  • sensory garden
  • play boat and train
  • playground markings for specific games
  • a range of small playground equipment e.g. hoops, balls, skipping ropes


Because of the restricted space on the playground, we restrict the use of balls to our large field, which pupils use when it is dry and the weather is fine.

Pupils may bring a small toy to play with at playtime.  This . must be inexpensive and fit in their coat pocket.  Please make sure the toy is named.  The toy will be the responsibility of your child, so please don't send a treasured item.  We don't allow metal toys, toys with sharp edges, guns or yoyos.
