The Nursery provides part-time education for 80 children split between morning and afternoon sessions. Children are admitted to the Nursery at the beginning of the Autumn Term after their third birthday. Children can facilitate care provision at a younger age than this. Please see the additional information in this pack. The Nursery building and Childrens’ Centre Base are purposely designed to meet the needs of early years care and education. The specially designed facilities include carpeted areas for language, literacy, mathematics and imaginative and technological activities. There are built areas for art, craft, sand and water activities and appropriate apparatus for indoor and outdoor play.

KS 1

Key Stage 1 is divided into two year groups. Each year group has its own teacher who is helped at specific times by a Teaching Assistant. The classrooms are modern and well equipped with areas that support activities that develop and extend skills.

KS 2

Children move into Key Stage 2 at age seven, when they start year 3. The school day includes a whole school act of worship and on occasions the whole school worships at Holy Trinity Church. Parents are always welcome to attend all worship in school and church.

During the normal school week teaching hours in Key Stage 2 are 24 and Key Stage 1 21.5 as recommended by the Department for Education and Skills.
