About Blue Gate Fields Infants' School

We are a three form entry Infant school which opened in 1994, situated in the heart of Shadwell.
There are excellent public transport links close by and we share an onsite car park with the Junior school.
We have a modern, purpose built building which is spread over two floors, with lift access. The classrooms are spacious and well resourced. We have two well maintained, attractive large playgrounds with high quality equipment and resources for the children. We are dedicated to equality and value diversity.

Our parents are very supportive and work with us to encourage the children to succeed in school. The majority of our families are from the local Bangladeshi community, with almost all the children learning English as a second language. We are an inclusive school, with a number of children in each class who have additional needs.
