The Pre-School setting is based within Delph Primary School and caters for children between two and a half and four years old.
The atmosphere is friendly and informal. Day to day activities are structured on the basis that learning should be fun. We aim to ensure that all children feel included, secure and valued.
Delph Primary School provides a broad, balanced curriculum which meets National Curriculum requirements and is differentiated to meet the needs and abilities of the children. We plan our teaching and learning thoroughly to enable each child to reach for the highest level of personal achievement. A variety of teaching methods are used, including, whole class teaching, group work and individual teaching. Your child will spend the main part of their time at school on the core curriculum. The remainder of their time will be spent on studying the foundation subjects.
Much of the curriculum is taught through carefully planned topics, which may focus on specific subjects. Children in Reception class work towards Early Learning Goals in six areas of experience which lead towards the National Curriculum. In the Early Years, children also learn through structured practical / play activities.
Throughout the year there are a variety of clubs and activities made available to the children. Many will take place after school, but some are run as breakfast clubs and at lunch time. These include: Football, Netball, Chess, Art, Table Tennis, Badminton, Tag Rugby, Running, French, Multi-Skills, Rounders and Eco-Club. There are also opportunities for children to learn instruments, join the school band and sing in the choir.
Most of these activities are provided free of charge and may change termly. Children and parents will be notified about individual arrangements.
