Early Years

Our Early Years unit is for pupils from 3-5. Our nursery and reception children play and learn alongside each other, developing friendships and helping each other succeed.

Calm And Creative Environment

Our recently refurbished Early Years Unit is  a calm and purposeful environment designed to support all children to learn through meaningful and engaging child initiated play.

The importance of play in child development is fundamental and we are proud of our carefully structured curriculum.  This ensures that all children are given the opportunities to learn through curiosity, exploration and discovery.

Outdoor Learning

Our outdoors area is designed to ensure that children’s learning continues as they explore outside.

We have lots of opportunities for physical development through our bikes and trim trail, running alongside our mud kitchen, building area and lots of opportunities for mark making in the outdoor classroom.

The children are outside all year round, so do make sure they have warm coats and wellies to keep them safe and comfortable while learning outside.


In Reception, we ask our children to complete half termly ‘home learning grids’ for their homework.  This enables children to practise a wide range of skills at home and to share their learning across the curriculum.  In Reception, this homework is sent home from the second Autumn half term.

We also fully understand the impact of regular reading on a child’s development.  Therefore we ask for every child to read a minimum of 3 times per week.
