This page has been developed to support parents and carers of children within both Nursery and Reception classes.
Teachers and support staff are really looking forward to welcoming back familiar faces and meeting new children and their families.
Here you will find information about the Early Years Foundation Stage, including: curriculum information, policy, learning through play ethos, links to further resources and class based information.
We are also gathering photos and adding these to this page so that you can have a look and share them with your child in advance of starting Nursery/ Reception.
You will receive information by post and a member of staff will be in contact with you in due course.
We are really looking forward to meeting you!

Early reading and phonics…
In Nursery, children participate in a variety of child-initiated and adult-led learning experiences to support the development of early reading and phonics skills. Seven aspects of Phase 1 are built into a wide range of practical, play based and fun learning contexts. Developing children’s listening and attention skills and phonological awareness is the key foundation for further development in this area. Creative use of songs, rhymes and stories enables children to develop interest in books and reading, become immersed in key texts and acquire and apply new skills in different contexts alongside stimulating, imaginative play both indoors and outdoors.
In Nursery (Summer term onwards) and Reception, we follow the Read Write Inc phonics scheme. Here, children are involved in daily sessions to learn letter sounds, take part in blending activities and learn to read sentences and practice their letter formation to improve handwriting skills.
