Welcome to Early Years!

“Teachers in the early years are skilled in picking up on children’s interests and enthusiasms to extend their learning.” Ofsted February 2019

We are a pre-school and Reception unit where we work closely together, following an emergent curriculum that is based around the interests of the wonderful children within our unit. Miss Dixon (working Monday and Tuesdays) and Miss Peart  (working on Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays)are the classteachers. Mrs Bird works in the unit as a Higher Level teaching assistants. For more information on our pre-school provision click here.

Transition is an important part of school life, particularly when children move classes. Please find below a booklet that may help your child when moving from Class 1 to Class 2.
