We have many family learning groups in our school, working with pupils and their families from Reception to year 6. These groups enable parents to come into school and take an active part in their children’s learning while developing parents understanding of what the children are learning in school.
This year we have run Language and Play sessions in Nursery. Story Trails in Nursery, Reception and year 1. Reception and year 1 pupils and their parents or carers have also taken part in courses based around phonics, early mathematical development and have learned how to use I-Pads.
While a year 4/5 group of pupils have worked with their parents to develop literacy and maths skills.
At the end of these sessions parents receive a qualification and some parents decide to further develop their own skills.
Most of the pupils within our Foundation Phase start their school lives with us in our part time Nursery, with the majority starting as rising 3’s. “getting ready for school” sessions are run for pupils and their parents to help with the transition from part time Nursery to full time school.
Throughout the Foundation Phase children are encouraged to discover and explore within the setting with much of their learning taking place through real life experiences.
Children are able to learn both indoors and out, in a variety of ways, at their own pace to suit their individual learning styles and needs.
All pupils are valued and nurtured within our setting, where a love of learning is encouraged and pupils are developed to reach their full potential.
