Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Early Years

The learning programme in our Nursery is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.  Our aim is to provide holistic learning in a safe, happy and stimulating environment through which all children are challenged and make excellent progress.  We aim to develop confident, happy children, equipped with foundations to nurture a lifelong love of learning.

We build confident communicators, supporting every child as an individual across development in all areas of the Early Years and Foundation Stage.

We teach through play-based learning and have a different topic every term.  We cover learning and development in all areas of the Foundation Curriculum.  Our topics for the Nursery are:

  • Getting to Know You
  • Home Sweet Home
  • What Shall We Wear?
  • Paws and Claws
  • Let's Go Shopping!

Areas of Learning

In the Nursery Curriculum, these areas include the following:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Assessment

Our children are assessed mainly through observations which are recorded in a Learning Journal.  We take photographs and celebrate their work in our displays. 

Conversations between school and home are very important and help us to get a broader picture of each child as a unique learner.
