Welcome to our EYFS

Welcome to Nursery!

Miss Latta, Mrs Hourihan, Mrs Kane & Miss McAllister (Apprentice)

In Nursery, we provide the ideal start for a child to develop their confidence as a playful, motivated and independent learner, within a safe and caring, yet vibrant and enriching setting. Children are consistently encouraged to freely enjoy both the captivating indoor and challenging outdoor learning environments; accessing stimulating resources and developing their natural impulse to explore through play. 

We provide varied opportunities to build communication and language skills, whilst celebrating the children’s cultures and communities, nurturing their self esteem, encouraging problem solving abilities and promoting good social skills. We enjoy celebrating successes, whether big or small, and encourage our children to explore, discover, create and make progress at their own individual pace; giving each child a sense of achievement. 

Our school’s core values: Determination, Resilience, Empowerment, Appreciation, Motivation and Safety (DREAMS) are firmly embedded in our daily routine; as we encourage the children to build upon their independence, persevere, develop good manners and then inspire others to do the same. 

We take good care to work in partnership with parents/carers to ensure a smooth transition from your home to our Nursery setting. 

At the moment, the vast majority of our children are working remotely from home. To access our daily remote learning template, please click the following link: Our Nursery Remote Learning Activities.

Welcome to Reception!

Mrs Doyle, Miss Doyle, Mrs Fearnley, Miss Taylor & Miss Dalton

We provide a stimulating and engaging environment, which is both protective yet supportive of the children’s well-being. We believe that a classroom where children feel valued and can grow in confidence, helps them to feel happy, settled and secure. Our child-centred approach aims to support each child to develop holistically and at their own pace. We provide an enabling environment, promoting communication and language skills, whilst ensuring that learning is engaging and enjoyable. 

Learning happens through investigation, exploring and immersive, hands-on experiences within a play based curriculum. Our team is dedicated to bringing out the best in the children and our plan for learning is based on the children’s own interests and needs. We set achievable challenges and always encourage them to try their best. They are provided with many, varied opportunities to develop and we nurture their confidence so that they can all make positive steps towards achieving their potential. 

We value the importance of the outdoor environment, ensuring that children have the opportunity to learn about the world around them, in a natural and safe space. Children are allowed to take managed risks, which both supports their growth and allows them to become critical thinkers, and confident, independent learners. Every child has their own Learning Journey, which documents the progression and own unique experience throughout their time in Reception. 

Happiness and wellbeing is at the core of our values and a love of learning creates memorable experiences our children will cherish.
