Our early years foundation stage (EYFS) classes may well be your child’s first experience of sustained contact with adults and children outside your close family and circle of friends. We hope to make the transition from home to school a positive and happy experience for children and their parents. We want children to go home bursting with stories of their exciting day at school.
Children joining our early years foundation stage classes find themselves in an exciting learning environment. They are taught in well-equipped, modern classrooms and use a covered, all-weather area and hard-surfaced area for outdoor learning. They also have their own separate field and safe all-weather surface for their playtimes.
Each child will know their own teacher and teaching assistant. However, the two early years classes are open plan, with activities arranged across both rooms and the shared outdoor area. During the course of the day, children may work alongside children and adults from the other class. Children are encouraged to make choices and decisions in their learning and develop a sense of independence in preparation for work in the coming years.
The adults they meet at school will be enthusiastic, well-trained people who enjoy the activities almost as much as the children!
