Early Years

Welcome to Early Years

In EYFS, the most important thing is that we all feel secure, happy and loved. We learn to care for each other and keep everyone safe, having lots of fun in the process of exploring and learning through play.

Parent Observations in Early Years

In Early Years, we get as excited as you do watching your child grow and develop, and would like to celebrate all their achievements – whether they happen at school or at home with you. We would love to hear from you about the things your child enjoys or achieves. It helps us to create a ‘well-rounded’ picture of who your child really is.

Sports Day     


Nursery had a fantastic time showing off their physical skills during sports day.  All the children showed great team spirit and gave 100% effort.
