Preparing for School

*Click here to find out how to prepare your child for school, including some great top tips!*

We firmly believe that a happy and confident start to school for both children and parents lays the foundation for a successful and confident school career.

Nursery (3-4 years old)

Children attend for either a morning session (8:30am - 11:30am) or an afternoon session (12:45pm - 3:45pm). Children will begin Nursery in the academic year in which they are 4 years old.

Reception (4-5 years Old)

The children begin full-time school gradually. They are divided into three groups determined by their age and phased into Reception accordingly. All Reception children will be attending school full-time by the end of October.

Both the Nursery and Reception classes will be following the  Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum.

Years 1-6

These classes will follow the National Curriculum guidelines (Key Stages 1 and 2). At the end of Year Two and Year Six the children will sit the Standard Assessment Tasks (S.A.T.s), which are designed to test their progress in the core subjects of English and Maths.
