Nursery

We have extended our Foundation Stage class to 3-5 years which includes a 13 place nursery.

The nursery is part of an exciting Early Years Foundation Stage Unit, which is purpose built for nursery and Reception aged children where provision is of the highest quality. There is a spacious, secure outdoor learning environment where children can use large equipment and wheeled toys as well as benefit from structured play and learning activities. Indoors, the area is attractively laid out to stimulate young minds. The unit has the advantage that nursery and Reception children can work and play alongside one another and access learning opportunities that are appropriate to their needs and interests, led by any of the Foundation Stage staff.

 

Early Years outsideEarly Years outsideTeaching in our Early Years class is based on the fundamental principal that children learn best through play and concrete experiences. We recognise that learning does not just happen at school and our Early Years curriculum builds on and extends the experiences children have had and do have at home. Our staff work closely with parents and carers to provide a safe and secure environment where children feel confident to explore and investigate through self-chosen and planned play. Children will take part in adult-led activities as well as creating their own play using our wide range of stimulating resources and extensive space. We aim to broaden children’s experience by extending their play and challenging them when they are ready.

 

Parents/carers wishing to apply for a place for their child up to and including April 2018 will need to complete both a Nursery Application Form and a Nursery Supplementary Evidence Form 2016-2018 and return these to the school by the deadlines set out in the Governor's Policy on Nursery Admissions 2016-2018

If your child will be starting Nursery from September 2018 onwards, please refer to the Governor's Policy on Nursery Admissions 2018-2019 and the Supplementary Evidence Form at the back of this policy.
