Nursery

FOUNDATION STAGE

Morning and Afternoon Nursery (3-4 years)

Cherry Classes

We have 52 children in the Nursery divided into 2 classes.  The 3 hour sessions are led by a Nursery Teacher, supported by Teaching Assistants. The children have free access to the outdoors throughout the session, in all weathers.  We provide waterproof suits and boots for messy and wet play.

We follow the Foundation Stage curriculum, giving plenty of opportunity for imaginative, physical and creative play as the children develop mathematical, language, personal & social skills, and knowledge of the world around them. During independent learning time, the children build confidence and learn new skills in a safe environment.

Our Nursery is an intrinsic part of our school. The children in Nursery wear uniform and follow the same Golden Reminders as the rest of the school.  We see this as a positive way to provide a smooth transition from Nursery to Reception and ensures that children and their families feel part of the school.

The Nursery Staff work closely with the Reception staff to ensure that learning is continuous and progressive and that children in the Foundation Stage receive the best start to their educational lives.
