Working Together to Expect the Best

Welcome to our website. We hope you will enjoy looking at some of the lovely things we do at school.


Welcome to Nursery


We have morning and afternoon sessional Nursery places.

Our children begin their Nursery experience the term after they turn 3 years old.


Nursery entry points are: September, January and April.


The children in Nursery learn through play. The Nursery children have a large indoor and outdoor environment which is very exciting and enables the children to engage in play and enquiry based learning. 


The curriculum the children learn through is called:

The Early Years Foundation Stage

(encompassing children's learning from 0 - 5 years) 


In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) there are 7 areas of learning and development:


Prime Areas:  

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

Specific Areas:

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


If you have any questions, please speak to Miss Carter.
