Pocklington C.E. Infant School

Happy Children Loving Learning (Proverbs 8)

Loving Learning

Our school vision is ‘happy children loving learning’.

 We have created this section of our website to help you understand how we are working to ensure the children at Pocklington Infant School love learning. 


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.
