School Day

The school day is structured and tailored to support the learning needs of each individual child.  The day is divided into morning and afternoon sessions, where activities are planned to support development across all the areas of learning, including introducing them to phonics and literacy skills, and Numeracy.

The Pre-school works closely with Reception class, and are fully integrated into the life of the school.  They enjoy sharing snack time with Reception, as well as having French and P.E. lessons with them, therefore enjoying and engaging in a rich curriculum with a wonderful range of experiences.  There is also the option of participating in extra curricular activities, such as dance and instrumental lessons.
