Welcome to Early Years

Message from the class teacher

In Early Years we ensure our children develop a broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

We seek to provide:

  • Quality and consistency, so that every child makes good progress and no child gets left behind.
  • A secure foundation through learning and development opportunities which are planned around the needs and interests of each child and are assessed and reviewed regularly.
  • Partnership working between practitioners and parents.
  • Equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice, ensuring that every child is included and supported.

We believe that all children bring with them deep curiosity and potential, are competent and capable thinkers and learners as well as creative communicators and conversationalists. We believe in a child who has a fundamental right to ‘realise and expand their potential’. This is a child who is driven by curiosity and imagination, a capablestrong child who delights in taking responsibility for his or her own learning, a child who listens and is listened to, a child with an enormous need to love and to be loved, a child who is valued.




PE Lessons

Our PE lessons are usually on Tuesday afternoons and Friday mornings. However, these days may change to accommodate other events so your child should have their PE kit in school for a full week.


Each week, your child will be given the following homework:

  • One piece of Phonics or Maths (alternate weeks)
  • A reading book
  • Parent link activities

In addition, your child has a log-in for the following website to support their independent study:
