Welcome to the Nursery. We feel privileged to be sharing your child’s first experiences of school life. This is a time for new beginnings, making friends and learning lots of new and exciting things each and every day. Our days will be filled with lots of wonderful experiences and opportunities for learning and growing. To keep you fully informed of your child’s experiences in school, you will receive a termly curriculum leaflet and a weekly ‘Dear Parent’ letter is posted onto the News/Events page on this website.

We like to learn in Foundation Stage One
We learn in the following areas:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language
Literacy - Reading/Writing/Phonics
Understanding The World
Expressive Arts and Design
Throughout the curriculum areas the children are encouraged to play and explore, solve problems, be creative and think critically. Children are active in their learning and are given opportunities to take risks and develop resilience.
