‘In play a child always behaves beyond their average age, above their daily behaviour. In play it is as though they were a head taller than themselves’ – Lev Vygotsky
We follow the EYFS curriculum using both the indoor and outdoor learning environment. We are providing a high quality early years education which gives children a secure and confident start to their school life and nurtures lifelong learning.

‘The best classroom and the richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky’- Margaret McMillan
Children have access to our designated outdoor learning environment every day. It is used to support all 7 areas of learning, and has as much value as learning indoors. Please remember to send your child with appropriate outdoor clothing.
In Nursery, we have small group, hall PE sessions in the summer term.
In Reception, we have PE on Thursdays.
Children in Reception are issued with homework to complete each week.
‘The environment should act as an aquarium, which reflects the ideas, ethics, attitudes and culture of the people who live in it’ – Loris Malaguzzi
The environment is stimulating and supports learning through carefully planned displays and areas of learning, as well as celebrating all children’s fantastic achievements. Children have access to resources from the seven areas of learning and can self-select the activities they would like to use. This not only enthuses the children but also helps develop skills of independence, negotiation and problem solving. Children are also responsible for taking care of their environment inside and out and tidy away after themselves, there is a real ethos of looking after our learning environment and all staff have very high expectations of all children.
