Our main aim in Nursery is to ensure that the children enjoy their experience and get accustomed to the school routine. Almost all of their learning is through play in our dedicated Early Years Classroom and outside learning environment. The nursery children share a classroom with the Reception children, and take part in worship, PE, lunchtime, snack time, singing and many other activities with the whole school. They flourish in this environment and settle in to our school family extremely quickly! They also wear the school uniform and PE kit which we feel gives them a real sense of belonging.
We are incredibly lucky to have extensive school grounds which incorporates an outdoor area specifically for the Nursery and Reception children with a mud kitchen, story circle, den-making and much more! We promote outdoor play wherever possible and encourage the children to bring waterproofs and wellies to enjoy their weekly outdoor sessions!
Our Christian Values are weaved through all we do in our Early Years. We encourage the children to treat each other with kindness and respect, learn to share, take turns and love one another.
It is a privilege to see children flourish and develop their own personalities over their time in our Early Years Class.
Starting in Nursery and becoming familiar with the school routine, even for a few days a week, we have found to be beneficial for many of our new starters and results in children making a happy, seamless transition into Reception. Nursery Education Funding hours are available (15 hours) as well as 30 hour term time places. Additional sessions outside funding will be charged at £4 per hour.
