Early Years


The Foundation Stage encompasses both Nursery and Reception.


Children in our Nursery and Reception classes have fantastic facilities for both indoor and outdoor learning. We have spacious and stimulating classrooms and outside areas that the children use throughout the school day.


The Early Years Foundation Stage covers the first two years at school, Nursery and Reception. The three prime areas are:

•     Personal, Social and Emotional Development
•     Physical Development
•     Communication and Language


The four specific areas of development are:

•     Literacy
•     Mathematics
•     Understanding of the World
•     Expressive Arts and Design


The children learn through play based curriculum, which draws on their interests and is pitched at each child’s personal level of development.
