The school has an onsite Nursery which takes one intake per year and which currently has 52 places in the morning, split between 2 nursery classes both lead by a qualified teacher. The children are able to alternate their sessions between our traditional nursery building and our Forest School nursery. We also have the capacity to offer 39 places during our afternoon session, primarily for those children whose families are eligible for the 30-hour funding. Further information can be found in the Nursery Admissions Policy (attached below). The Nursery sessions run from 8.30am to 11.30am with a paid Lunch Club running from 11.30am-12.30pm. For those children adding afternoon sessions the timings are 12.30pm to 3.30pm. There is also the opportunity for Nursery children to attend wrap around care from 7.30am until 6pm.

In Reception children are split into classes and have a dedicated class base and teacher. The Reception timetable is designed so that the children have opportunities for specific class time during the day and also free-flow opportunities where the children from the different classes mix and access all the areas of the unit both inside and outdoors.

In Reception the children will have a phonics and maths session daily, as well as opportunities to read and for the children to listen to a story or share an interesting text or rhyme.

All the children in EYFS have the opportunity to have sessions with the school’s specialist Music and PE teachers. Children in Reception also have regular opportunities to visit the onsite woodland to take part in Forest School type activities.
