Early Years Foundation Stage
Early years education provides the building blocks for a child’s success at primary school.
Children in the Nursery and Reception classes have a wide range of opportunities to help them to develop socially, learn new skills and to practice them in a safe, vibrant and happy environment. Children learn through playing, exploring their environment, experimenting and talking to peers and adults.
Staff, in both Nursery and Reception, carefully prepare a range of learning opportunities for indoor and outdoor learning all year round. The teachers work closely to ensure that learning opportunities are both varied and consistent across the entire Early Years Foundations Stage.
Children in the EYFS are allocated a key worker with special responsibility for monitoring learning and the children’s well-being throughout the day.
We have the following number of pupils on roll in the Foundation Stage:
Nursery (full time and part time) – 30 pupils
Reception – 30 pupils
Key Stage 1
Children move into Key Stage 1 when they are five, at the start of Year 1. Staff work closely to ensure a smooth transition into Year 1 by building on the children’s experiences and achievements in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Children in Key Stage 1 have daily literacy and numeracy lessons but continue to learn through a topic based approach. The children have their own playground space which allows them to mix with children in other classes.
We have the following number of pupils on roll in KS1:
Year 1 – 30 pupils
Year 2 – 30 pupils
Key Stage 2
Children move into Key Stage 2 when they are seven, at the beginning of Year 3. Throughout Key Stage 2, our children are taught life skills that help them to understand wider issues such as tolerance and citizenship. They are encouraged to take on greater responsibility for their learning and development.
Children are increasingly made aware of learning goals and areas for development. Children in Key Stage 2 continue to have daily literacy and numeracy lessons and continue to learn through a topic based approach.
We have the following number of pupils on roll in KS2:
Year 3 – 30 pupils
Year 4 – 31 pupils
