Welcome to the Nursery page
Our teachers are Mrs Alison Wilmshurst (Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday) and
Mrs Claire Edmondson (Thursday & Friday).
Our teaching assistants are Mrs Vicki Thompson, Mrs Louise Seale, Ms Anna Monkman and Mrs Tracey Gaved
Our emphasis at this stage is on learning through play. The casual observer might consider that children are merely playing with sand, dough, bricks and so on.
The children are in fact working hard to make sense of and to master their environment.
As educators we aim to provide a stimulating learning environment which encourages skill development. Appropriate interventions from adults ensure that language development takes place and that early concepts are instilled as skills are mastered.
Our role is also to share the joy and wonder of the world around us and to encourage the enjoyment that discovery brings.
The Early Years Team comprising of teachers and assistants in the Nursery and Reception classes work very closely together to ensure continuity and progression within the Foundation Stage curriculum through planning and assessment.
We operate an `open door’ policy when children from the Nursery and Reception classes are encouraged to visit each other’s classrooms.

We always welcome examples of the children's learning that they have done at home - please bring them in for us to share and celebrate! It could be a post it, a photo, a picture or something else!
