An Infant school is a type of school which caters for young children, usually between the ages of four and seven years. It is usually a small school serving a particular locality. The term is used primarily in the United Kingdommarker.

An infant school forms part of the local pattern of provision for primary education. In Englandmarker and Walesmarker children start at infant school between the ages of four and five in a Reception class. Reception is the final part of the Foundation Stage, and is compulsory (unlike Nursery). Pupils then transfer to Year One in the September following their fifth birthday, and to Year Two the following year. These two years form Key Stage 1 in the English education system. At the end of this time, most pupils will move to a linked junior school, although some may move to a through primary school.

The introduction of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 meant that classes in infant schools in Englandmarker and Walesmarker are limited to no more than 30 children per school teacher.

In some areas of England, provision of education at this age is made in First schools catering for pupils aged up to eight or nine.
