We currently run 2 Nursery sessions both in the morning and afternoon with 26 places in each for children aged 3-4.

How we learn in Nursery

The Nursery curriculum is based around the 'Early Years Foundation Stage Framework' (EYFS) which covers 7 different areas of learning. These are:

  • Communication and Language 
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Learning is play - based which means that on the whole, children choose the activity that they would like to do and their learning is supported and extended by adults in the classroom, as part of their play. Learning also takes place in small groups, or whole class sessions which we plan based around the children’s interests and topics relevant to them such as seasonal change.

Getting Ready for Nursery



We use the 'Tapestry' app to record observations of the children in Early Years. We add photographs, videos and comments about your child and what they have been learning at school. This is a lovely way for us to communicate with you as parents and you can also add photographs and comments about your child from home! 


You will be sent an activation code via email to gain access to your child's account. 

Please come and see me if you are having any issues with this.
