School Policies & Procedures

Kindergarten (Early Years)

We offer a seasonally based, integrated curriculum with a rich variety of activities each of which enables learning across many areas of the curriculum. This allows children to learn in a holistic & meaningful way.

Kindergarten (5-6 years)

We recognise that the older children need a more challenging experience, including raised expectations from the adults in the setting and a programme of work appropriate to their age, (Key Stage 1 in other school settings).

Learning Support

Careful observation and assessment in partnership with parents, the setting’s qualified SENDCOs, and the local authority’s SEND team enable us to draw up individual support plans, monitor progress and make referrals to external agencies as appropriate.
