Early Years


 our school, Monday to Friday for 3 hours.

Children who have reached their 3rd birthday are entitled to take up to 15/30 hours funded per week depending on personal circumstances.

These sessions provide valuable learning experiences for pre-school children and they have a thorough grounding and induction into school-life.

Children spend some of their time with reception and KS1 children and start learning sooner.  It is also a time for learning through play.

We feel that working with children in mixed age classes has many benefits, including the ability of the teacher to meet individual needs regardless of their Year group. Also there is class stability and continuity making transition into school easier.

Children can spend longer than their 'free' hours at school but these hours are chargeable.


The EYFS summary is available along with a parents' guide and development matters    on the link above.  Please look at this to learn what your child will be learning and what you can expect from the school
