A warm welcome to our Early Years! I am delighted you are reading about our wonderful School, where we are proud that according to our latest Ofsted inspection (October 2017), ‘learning and teaching within Early Years is especially strong’. We aim to support children to achieve their full potential socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually within our happy and enabling environment.
Our Early Years team place particular emphasis on ensuring children feel motivated and that families feel safe in the knowledge that we work closely with them to provide the very best educational start for their child.
We were delighted to win the 2018 Worcestershire Early Years Education Award as testament to our team work and dedication! We work closely together to ensure our youngest children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum through our creative and inspiring teaching.
We offer continuous provision within the early years setting where children are encouraged to explore both the indoor and outdoor learning environments. Outdoor learning is enriched through regular Forest School opportunities.
We provide a range of friendly parent workshops which can include: ways you can help your child develop; how to handle challenging behaviours; phonics and ideas for play.
In addition we are particularly excited to introduce a fabulous on-line sharing experience for parents. ‘Tapestry’ is currently used by over 15,000 settings and is an online journal recording all the learning and fun of children’s early years’ education. Parents will be able to access Tapestry to see images and videos of their child and learn what they have been doing during the day.
We welcome enquiries and visits to our school first hand. We recognise the importance of feeling not just comfortable, but enthused about the school you choose to send your child to. We offer plenty of opportunities for you to join us for Open Events. We look forward to seeing you at our annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic in the summer; another chance for you to meet the team and other parents and carers joining our Federation.
I look forward to welcoming your child and family!
Head of Early Years
