Early Years Foundation Stage

The early years provision is good- Ofsted

Children make a strong start to their learning in the early years. They are enticed to learn many new things by skilled staff.

Teachers provide exciting learning activities that capture children’s interest. Children build up their knowledge effectively through well-structured and focused teaching.

Children develop positive attitudes to learning. They begin to learn phonics well in the Nursery class. This helps children to make good progress in their reading.

Children achieve well and in the early years, leaders ensure that no opportunity to learn is lost.

Children settle quickly due to the highly nurturing environment, caring staff, well established routines and strong links with parents. Staff know every child and their parents well. These strong links enable parents to support their children's learning well.
