About our Nursery

We have provision for 3-4 year olds in our morning session and 2 year olds can attend our afternoon sessions. We offer full days to our 3-4 year old children which includes the opportunity to have a hot dinner. 

Our provision follows the EYFS Framework ensuring we follow the EYFS Principles and we use the Development Matters document to assist with planning for a purposeful learning environment.

We have a focus on Phonics in the Nursery and we follow the 'Letters and Sounds' document the same as the rest of the school. Our main focus is Phase 1 phonics.

The children have regular access to experiences such as cooking, physical activities using the whole school equipment and music sessions. 

Planning in the Moment

As in the Reception class careful observation 'next steps' are identified for groups of children and each individual and these determine the areas of learning we need to focus on. Planning is completed on a day to day basis to ensure that the children’s interests and fascinations are responded to quickly to gain the full value of their curiosity and engagement at the time. The environment will reflect these interests and fascinations as opportunities are set up to explore them in all areas of the provision.
