Our early years provision was recently recognised as a strength of the school. Here are the main points from the early years section of the report:

‘Leaders ensure that children get off to a smooth start through effective liaison with many outside agencies. Close working and sharing of information using consistent policies and procedures means that the transition process for children who move into Reception and onto Year 1 is seamless.’

‘Staff develop supportive relationships with and between children. As a result, children enjoy the chances they get to learn with and from each other. This underpins their improving progress during the early years, especially in developing their communication, language and literacy skills from starting points below those typically found. Activities planned to promote these aspects through topics such as ‘Dinosaurs’ are engaging boys in particular and proving successful and improving outcomes quickly.’

‘Children also make gains in developing their self-confidence and readiness to learn. Children enjoy their learning and behave and play well together. This is because they are equally included in a wide range of indoor and outdoor learning experiences.’
