We hope your child will be happy in Foundation Stage, have lots of fun, make friends and learn to do many new things. Our aim is to provide a secure foundation for all children to ensure they make excellent progress through school. We ensure that your child’s experience of school is broad, balanced and enriching whilst following their individual needs and interests. We work closely together to get to know your child so that we can support their play, development and learning. Your child will have a key person who is responsible for their well-being during their time in Foundation Stage. However, they will work with all members of the team during their time with us.
Your child will have a day packed full of fun activities and play both indoors and outdoors. Play will involve:
- Children initiating their own play and activities
- Adults initiating activities which are carried independently by the children
- Adult led activities
We believe that every child is unique and we aim to support them to develop a positive sense of identity and culture. We work hard to build positive relationships that respond to your child’s needs, feelings and interests. In Foundation Stage, we believe in a strong partnership between the school and parents/carers. We provide rich learning opportunities through play and imaginative teaching, ensuring challenging, playful opportunities across the prime and specific areas of learning and development.
