EARLY YEARS

 

The Early Years department : Quartz, Pearl and Sunstone (Nursery, Reception and Year 1)

School opening times for pupils: 9.15am - 3.15pm

The curriculum is divided into 7 areas.

3 prime areas of learning:

  • Personal social and emotional development
  • Communication and language
  • Physical development

And 4 specific areas of learning:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

Emphasis is placed on personal and social skills, in order for the children to develop basic self-help skills as quickly as possible, thus promoting independence and a positive self-image.

The classes have a child-centred ethos. We provide and create opportunities and experiences for our children to learn in a fun and stimulating environment.

Each class has 7 or 8 pupils with one teacher and  3 or 4 support staff.

We value parental input and support and run regular parent workshops and coffee mornings.
