The Foundation staff are a happy, close-knit team who endeavour to make the children's transition into school an enjoyable experience. 

Through the Foundation Stage curriculum, we give children the opportunity to learn from first hand experience by participating in a wide range of activities linked to the 7 areas of learning and development.


The 3 prime areas are:

Communication and Language

Physical Development

Personal, Social and Emotional Development.

These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning. As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas - Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

We like to work in partnership with families and carers to encourage the children to become self-confident and independent learners.


 Are there any achievements that your child is proud of that you would like to share with us at school? The email address to send in photos and a short explanation is below:

10th September

This week the children have enjoyed meeting up with old friends and making new ones! We have had our first experiences of lunch at Belgrave and it has been lovely to see the children trying new foods and enjoying the delicious new menus. If you would prefer your child to have a hot option every day, please let us know and we will make a note of it.

We have been enjoying the weather this week and making the most of the last few weeks of summer. Outdoor play helps the children to make and establish friendships and encourage sharing and cooperative play.

We are establishing all of the class routines and rules in class and the children seem to have a new routine to learn every day.

We are all looking forward to next week when they are in full time. Don't forget the PTA will host a Tea and Tissues session in the staff room after you drop the children off this will give parents the opportunity to meet up with other Reception parents and to meet Sian our class Rep.



First Day at School

We have really enjoyed meeting our new Reception children today.  They have enjoyed exploring their new environment and making new friends.  Our topic this half term is 'Marvellous Me'  We are looking forward to learning all about each other and can't wait to share our All about Me books with our friends!
