Our Foundation Learning Stage begins at Pre-Nursery and continues through Nursery, Kindergarten and Reception. Here our students develop their early skills of questioning, exploring and investigating the world around them, as well as develop their basic skills in Numeracy and Literacy, including developing their knowledge of phonics.

Spoken Language
Verbal communication in Standard English is such a valuable asset that explicit teaching is vital to a child’s development; there are skills that all students need to consciously learn if they are to become effective communicators.
Within the Early Years setting, the ability to speak clearly and with confidence is a key area for development. Throughout their day, children have a variety of activities to promote their communication and language development.
All children in Early Years have a portfolio containing their reading records, pieces of work and their EYFS Profile. These folders move up with them to their next class the following year. In KS1 & KS2, we keep assessments in individual folders at school, which students can view throughout the year. These will be available at parents’ evenings.
