Willow Class is where our pre-school children are educated and nurtured. The school admits children from the term after their third birthday, and children remain in Willow Class until they enter the main school in Year 1 (the September after they turn 5). The class is purpose built and has recently (January 2013) been completely refurbished inside; we hope to complete the redevelopment of the outside area during the academic year 2013-14.
The school follows the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, supported by the guidance within Development Matters – we have high academic expectations within a play-based curriculum, and there is a strong focus on practical learning.
Please note that we are able to accept childcare vouchers (ie from employer tax-break schemes) as payment for extra nursery sessions. Contact the office for more details if you would like to pay using this method.
