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.

We offer an enriching curriculum that is full of purposeful learning opportunities, led by fully qualified early years practitioners who are passionate about helping young children reach their full potential. Not only will the children benefit from a curriculum that is tailored to their individual needs but they will enjoy weekly sessions in French, P.E., Dance, Cookery, Music Bugs and Forest Schools, as well as daily sessions in phonics and numeracy skills.

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 many of the curriculum enhancing lessons with them.  This is a wonderful opportunity for our young children and allows for a seamless transition into Reception.

Below is a selection of some of the activities available to Pre-School children:

  • PE
