Year R is the final year of the Early Years Foundation Stage, which is the statutory framework for children from birth to five years. This means that children will continue their learning journey from home, nursery or pre-school into Year R and continue to learn through play, with a balance of activities freely chosen by the child and focused learning opportunities led by an adult. A carefully planned transition programme is in place to enable children to settle into school quickly and easily.

To help children to feel secure at school, they each belong to a keyworker group of up to fifteen which is led by a familiar adult.  Each class has its own garden area which means that children are able to access outdoor learning opportunities throughout the day and have plenty of fresh air and exercise.

We want to make sure that every child feels happy at school.  Please feel free to talk to your child's class teacher whenever you are concerned about something.  If you are not able to speak to us at the door, please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.  Thank you.
