Bourne is a two-form entry County Primary school for children aged 3+ to 11. There are approximately 450 children on roll, which includes a nursery catering for 50 children.

The school serves an area of considerable diversity, which we see as a positive strength and we find many ways to celebrate the richness of language and culture that is represented within the school community.

Bourne School is a creative learning community where individual talents, abilities and personalities are valued. We believe that our caring and secure atmosphere encourages trust and respect between all members of the school community and this is central to the school ethos.

We are committed to Every Child Matters and want all children to:

Keep Healthy
Stay Safe
Enjoy learning and Achieve
Make a positive contribution
Achieve economic well-being


Our aims are to:

1                     Create a happy working school environment where every child matters and is valued.  

2                   Offer the children a broad, balanced and stimulating curriculum, which includes a wide range of practical activities.  

3                   Help children achieve their potential in all curriculum areas and develop a sense of responsibility for their learning.  

4                   Help children learn that courtesy, good manners, good behaviour and consideration for others are very important qualities.  

5                   Encourage a positive partnership between parents and school.

“Parents and children feel comfortable and happy, when they start school. Children in the Foundation Stage are very well cared for. This is apparent in their general demeanour and willingness to work and play.” Ofsted Feb 2002

The Nursery offers a well-established and exciting environment for your child to play and learn in. It is a spacious, self-contained, secure area, including its own outdoor play area and garden, which the children and parents help maintain.

Our Aims Are:

- To create a happy, caring, secure and fun environment.

- To encourage confidence, independence and a desire to learn by providing a stimulating environment.

- To focus on the development of the individual child, valuing and building on their previous experiences and responding to their individual needs.

- To work in partnership with parents.

- To provide a broad, balanced range of experiences.

- To provide foundations for later learning.

- To encourage good social relationships, developing self-esteem and respect of others.

Independence is encouraged and, by the time children enter Reception classes, most are taking responsibility for organising themselves.” Ofsted Feb 2002


The Nursery and Reception classes follow the Foundation Stage curriculum as set down by the QCA (Qualifications and Curriculum Authority). Stepping Stones and Early Learning Goals in the six areas of learning lay a secure basis for the children’s future learning. Children in the Nursery will be working along the Stepping Stones and aiming towards reaching the Early Learning Goals by the end of Reception. 

“The quality and range of learning opportunities for the children in the Foundation Stage are good. The curriculum provided takes full account of the recommended areas of learning and national guidelines.” Ofsted Feb 2002

The six areas of learning are: 

- Personal, social and emotional

- Communication, language and literacy

- Mathematical development

- Knowledge and Understanding of the world

- Physical development

- Creative development

All our activities are carefully planned and structured to provide a well-rounded and balanced learning environment for the children.  The Nursery team plans termly, weekly and daily and the plans are available for parents to look at on a notice board in the Nursery.  Assessment of the children is ongoing and informal, linking in with the Profiles completed in Reception and discussed with parents at Parents’ evenings and passed on to Reception the following year. A book of each child’s learning journey in Nursery is completed during the year, containing their significant achievements, documented through photos, observations and pieces of work. Much of the children’s learning will be through play, where children are offered a range of activities each with underlying educational purposes. Learning takes place in the Nursery through both structured and child led play. Activities provided for the children include: sand and water play, cooking, large and small construction, painting, drawing, dough, role play, computer (with internet access) music, sharing books, jigsaws, games, circle time, singing, outdoor play. The Nursery follows a consistent daily routine. 

“The well-organised routines in each of the classes enable all children to feel secure and grow in confidence.” Ofsted Feb 2002
