Our classroom is situated in the Early Years building adjoining to the Nursery and the Main School, providing a strong link between the two. Our strong relationship with Nursery ensures a natural progression into Reception. We have our own garden area with a rich choice of resources. Use of the big field during lunch break and specialist PE session mean the children have ample access to the outdoor environment. The children have specialist teaching for French once a week and begin swimming lessons in the summer term.
The classroom, comprising three rooms is arranged, to enable the children access to resources that will stimulate their development in all areas of the curriculum. The class teacher and Full Time Higher Level Teaching Assistant ensure the learning is tailored to the children’s individual needs, through positive relationships with both the children and their families. Following the children’s interests and creativity allows us to implement the new Early Years Curriculum with as much fun, wonder and exploration as possible, whilst mostly achieving and exceeding Early Learning Goals. Our recent ISI report states that the “Provisions for teaching and learning are outstanding [with] the attention to well-being at all times.”
