Our pre-school is situated within the school building next to our Reception classes.  It is a bright, vibrant and engaging space which has been specifically designed and created with children in mind.  The room has dedicated zones to enable the children to learn about the world around them, in fun and exciting ways.  Specific areas for maths, role play, writing, phonics, construction and reading ensure children are exposed to a wide and balanced curriculum. 


Shared planning sessions with the children ensure their voices are heard and all children have ownership of their own learning.  Our staff encourage and develop warm relationships which enable children to flourish and develop their personal and social skills; preparing them fully for their transition to primary school.
