Foundation Stage Long Term Plan

Most of our children have their first experience of school in our Early Years Department. Our caring, experienced staff provide a warm, welcoming and exciting learning environment for our youngest pupils in the Nursery. We welcome children from three years of age, normally admitting them in September, January or after Easter dependant on date of birth. If space is available the Nursery are now able to offer a place on a chargeable basis after the child’s third birthday.

Funded sessions are offered five mornings per week, Monday to Friday from 8.55am – 11.55 am.

30 hour funded sessions (12-3.15pm) have been offered from September 2017-ask about places.

This forms part of our Foundation Stage provision. Situated adjoining the Reception classroom, and being able to share the space and facilities of the main school our Nursery children benefit from access to our extensive school grounds including our produce gardens and wild area.

Our Nursery is well resourced and children learn through a mixture of play activities, both self – initiated and structured, circle and carpet times, social snack time as well as  adult led and small group activities.

In our Nursery, children experience a rich and stimulating curriculum, and most importantly develop the ability to work and play together with mutual respect and consideration. The development of imagination, curiosity through problem solving, physical skills and early numeracy and literacy skills all form part of each day for your child.

We aim to achieve a seamless transition from Nursery into our Reception class and our Nursery and Reception teachers work together with our headteacher to ensure our children are prepared and confident to continue their journey throughout school.
