About our setting and the Curriculum

We are a vibrant, caring and high quality setting, which is run by the leaders and governors of the school. We hope you enjoy finding out more about us from our prospectus and please do not hesitate to contact the main school office with any questions. 

Find out more about our pre school, by clicking on the above prospectus. To enquire about a place for your child, please contact Mrs Janice Haggett, Senior Administrator, via the school office.

We are going in to consultation to change the Pre-school in to a Nursery setting from September 2022.

Learning through Play

Children learn by doing and the emphasis on play is fundamental in the teaching of all curriculum subjects. We believe that children thrive and learn best through play, in a broad, diverse and stimulating curriculum.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS) at Pre-school and plan a wide range of activities to encourage exploration, discovery and learning across the 3 Prime and 4 Specific Areas of the EYFS. The areas of the curriculum are:

Prime Areas

§  Personal, Social and Emotional Development

§  Physical Development

§  Communication and Language

Specific Areas

§  Literacy

§  Mathematics

§  Understanding the World

§  Expressive Arts and Design

We operate a learning through play policy and our staff are there to nurture, support encourage and provide guidance where necessary, allowing your child to build on their existing skills through a careful process of Observation, Interaction, Assessment and Planning.
