In the Nursery and Reception Classes, the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum is followed and this is organised into six areas of learning:
- personal, social and emotional development
- communication, language and literacy
- problem-solving, reasoning and numeracy
- knowledge and understanding of the world
- physical development
- creative development
The children are taught by well-qualified staff who care for them as individuals and aim to meet their needs so that they can develop their full potential. Children learn through a range of first-hand experiences. There are dedicated areas for art, water and sand, role play and a designated area for outdoor play. Both Nursery and Reception children have PE lessons during the week and Reception children have one swimming lesson a week in the school's indoor pool. Music is taught throughout the Foundation Stage by specialist teachers.
