Early Years

The Early years lays foundations in all aspects of school life and builds up positive attitudes for life long learning. We provide the children with strategies that help them develop the emotional and social skills that they need through imitation, experimentation and exploration.

Nursery - Caterpillars

The school day offers the children a range of practical and creative activities. Language development plays an important role in the discovery of different materials and learning situations.

Art & crafts, music and  movement and drama activities introduce the children to the basic concepts.

Reception - Butterflies

The Early years Reception programme introduces both a number and a literacy and programme in an atmosphere designed to produce a positive attitude towards future learning.

This programme follows the English National Curriculum providing children with the skills needed to progress in year 1. All children enjoy learning with our ‘topic based’ approach which encompasses all areas of the curriculum. Children develop into confident and inquisitive students who show a genuine love of learning.

Parents are kept up to date regularly through emails, newsletters, photographs, parent/teacher meetings and written reports. Parents are invited to various events throughout the year.
