Making Memories that Matter.

Here in our Foundation Stage we encourage our children to flourish in all areas of learning by providing a caring, safe and nurturing environment. Having happy hearts enables our children to thrive and learn, preparing them for their lifelong journey.

Reinforcing the Fun

Valuing your input

Our families have a fundamental role in our children’s learning and development. We like to work together to ensure that all learning opportunities are made meaningful and memorable by encouraging families to join in with activities, both in and out of school.

We have fully funded spaces for 3 and 4 year olds!

Here at St Paul’s we have high expectations and aspirations for our children, wanting them to succeed in all areas of learning and to become unique individuals. We want the children to flourish in what makes them happy.

Like adults, children learn at their own pace and have their own interests. This is incorporated within our learning opportunities and we dedicate our provision and care to meet the children’s individual needs. The provision is enticing, engaging and challenging, whether a nursery or reception child.

We provide the requisite skills for reading and writing and follow the Read, Write, Inc. phonics programme.

Play is at the heart of our curriculum as children learn best through play and their experiences.

Early Years Curriculum

The Early Years Framework encourages experiential learning through play, with focus to broadening opportunities and exposure to a plethora of experiences.

Primarily we strive to encourage children to be independent learners. For this we get to know the children and help them enhance their social skills. These along with our school values (Friendship, Compassion and Endurance) help the children to become engaged and curious learners.

As a Foundation Stage class, the children in nursery and reception are exposed to the same topics. The experiences and support are tailored to the individual children’s needs and their learning is scaffolded to ensure that they are presented with achievable challenges (and importantly – lots of fun!).
