A friendly, trusting and happy atmosphere
We place special emphasis on encouraging pupils to develop their abilities in a friendly, trusting and happy environment. Our youngest pupils are integrated into school life and the particular characteristics of our teaching methods quickly and easily through specially decorated classrooms, available resources and the professionalism and care of our teaching staff.
The Foundation Stage (Primary School) is organised by the Teaching Director, who sets, subject to the approval of the school’s overall teaching management, the guidelines to be followed to ensure the transition from one year to the next is fluid and ensures the objectives set for these initial years are met. Our qualified teaching staff are in charge of teaching the pupils of each individual class.
In Pre-Nursery classes the teachers work alongside two full time learning support assistants in each class to ensure the children at this age receive the careful attention they require. This is then maintained for the Nursery and Reception years although there is only one assistant.
Independent playground and dining room
Pupils in this stage have their own playground facilities, with play equipment suitable for their age. They are monitored by members of staff at all times during their playtime.
Likewise, pupils in these years also have their own dining room with menus and timetables adapted to their age and school day.
“Everyday, I see how the play activities we organise stimulate children’s creativity in their early years and foster enthusiasm and an interest in learning”. Gillian Keighley, Reception Teacher & Foundation Coordinator.
