Foundation 1 - Angel Fish

Welcome to Foundation 1
Although everyday is different in our Nursery School, our booklet will show you a selection of teaching and learning experiences your child will enjoy.
 
The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum covers these areas of learning:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Our curriculum is planned and taught through the children’s needs and interests as we believe that children learn best when they are engaged and motivated. Our large classroom is organised into smaller areas for the children to access independently throughout the session. The Nursery team carefully observe, interact and challenge the children’s learning through their play. We have group time each session for children to sit and learn in a small familiar group with their key person.
 
Key workers will assess children's learning through observations and photographic evidence. These images can be found on Learning Journals. Parents play a huge role as educators and uploading your own pictures of your child to learning journals will help us engage with the child's interests outside of nursery. As a centre, we believe that children's progression and development is key to success.
Our last Ofsted inspection was October 2019

What did Ofsted say?

"Children’s smiling faces as they arrive at school make it clear just how much they are looking forward to the day ahead. Staff plan activities which are exciting and fun. Parents and carers are pleased with the quality of education their children receive."
