God made me so I am special

Nursery and Reception


Welcome to Early Years Foundation Stage


Miss Harwood, Miss Steele and Mrs Ledbrook (Nursery team)


Mrs Goodwin, Mrs Gilligan and Mrs McGrory (Reception team)


We love to learn and explore through play in a safe and secure environment. We are always developing our independent skills to enable us to be school ready. 


We are learning all the time to be kind and caring to one another, following in Jesus' footsteps.


Our Class Vocational Statement is 'God made me so I am special.' Our Class Saints are:

  • St. Anne (Nursery)
  • St. Joseph (Reception).


In Nursery and Reception we cover all 7 areas of learning. The Prime Areas are Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development and Communication and Language. The Specific Areas are Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. 


We provide an opportunity for the children in all year groups to access a broad and balanced 'Discovery Learning' curriculum. Children have an input on their learning and teachers ensure the skills and progression are in place, building upon the knowledge of previous years. Part of our curriculum will involve trips or visitors to enrich the children's learning; supporting the children to become immersed in their learning, helping them to know more and remember more.


Full details of the school's curriculum can be found on indicating Long term plans, knowledge organisers and core subject coverage/expectations.
