We believe that pupils learn best when they are active participants in planned, educational experiences which are appropriate to their level of development.  We want our pupils to experience a sense of success through their achievement and develope confidence and spiritual and moral values.

Early Years (Nursery and Reception)

Our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is a fully inclusive class for pupils aged 2 and a half (rising 3’s), Nursery (aged 3-4 years) and Reception (aged 4-5 years) with a diverse range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

We work as a large mulit-disciplinary team including physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists to assess pupils who may require an Education, Health and Care Plan.

Our curriculum follows a highly differentiated and bespoke version of the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile which focuses on the 7 prime and specific areas of learning: Personal, social and emotional development; Communication and language; Physical development;

Literacy; Mathematics; Understanding of the world; Expressive arts.

Our pupils learn via 1:1 and small group teaching and learning with an emphasis on indoor and outdoor learning through play.  We have a strong focus on literacy, maths and functional communication. We use a range of daily formative assessment opportunities culminating in

our summative Early Years Foundation Stage Profile and bsquared assessments.

Reading and phonics are given high priority in our school with daily sessions in the early years and Primary department. We use read write inc programme to support our teaching of these early skills. Children progress through the staged reading books from the Read Write Inc program. They also read from a range of other short appropriate books. Children are encouraged to take books home to read and share with their parents and carers to extend their learning.
