Welcome to Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)!

The EYFS is organised into two classes: one Reception Class and one Nursery/Reception Class (although children will mix within the setting and share purpose-built indoor and outdoor facilities).  The number of children leaving the EYFS with a Good Level of Development has risen year on year, and we are proud of our nurturing and enriching environment.

Nursery Education

Your child is entitled to join our Nursery class, within our Foundation Stage, at the start of the term after their third birthday.  We offer full-time places; either with 15 hours universal funding and payment for the additional hours, or full-time 30 hour entitlement places.  We do not require any fees paid before the children start, but would like to meet you and to give you and your child/ren chance to visit the setting.

 Please use the link below to find out if you are eligible for 30 hours:

Alternatively, any parents or carers not eligible are able to top up their child’s funded 15 hours through paying the school accordingly at a cost of £4.50 per hour.

We are now working in partnership with Earlyworld to provide breakfast and after-school care in their purpose built setting on the school site.  Please contact Earlyworld on 01865 881848 for further information.

We are very proud of the progress that nursery-aged children make with us, and have a proven track record over a number of years of ensuring children are fully school-ready for their Reception year.

If you would like to sign your child up for nursery education with us next year then please make an appointment to meet with me as soon as possible. The children learn well socially and academically involved in engaging age-appropriate experiences with reception-age children.

Admissions

Prospective families are warmly invited to make an appointment to meet the Headteacher to visit our setting – simply contact the school office.
