Our EYFS vision:

Our school mission is to be a school with ‘high expectations for all, in the light of Christ’, and this begins in our Early Years. Children will make good or outstanding progress from their individual starting points and will feel safe and nurtured.

It is important for our children to be happy, independent and confident learners and have the ability to take risks in a fun and engaging environment. We have highly trained staff who all know the pupils very well and so are able to engage in purposeful play alongside the children, as well as move their learning forward and support each individual need.

Our learning environments enable children to access a range of resources independently and foster a love of reading, writing and maths. We want the children to explore the world around them in an environment in which they feel safe and secure and where they can thrive as independent learners.
