Nursery Vision

To provide a safe, loving, secure, stimulating and exciting environment for children to “Light their spark” of learning.  In Nursery we will strive to enable all children to develop their capabilities and to become confident individuals. Our ultimate aim is for children to begin to build the essential skills and knowledge for them to be able to participate successfully into society, whilst still being unique and reflecting their individual communities and cultures.

In our Nursery we help children to develop in the framework of relationships and the environment around them. We also begin to teach children our school’s core values of LOVE, RESPECT, PERSEVERANCE AND THANKFULNESS, through the Early Years Curriculum.

This curriculum has 7 areas of learning

3 Prime Areas – (These areas are fundamental, they work together and move through to support development in all other areas)

PSED – Personal, Social and Emotional Development

PD – Physical development

CL – Communication and Language

4 Specific Areas – (These include essential skills and knowledge)



Understand the World

Expressive Arts and Design

Each individual child reaches out to relate to people and things through the Characteristics of Effective learning, which transfer through all areas of learning 

These characteristics are:

Playing and Exploring

Active Learning

Creating and thinking critically 

We use the 5 point “Leuven scale”, which is a form of assessment that measures children’s emotional well-being and involvement. These are directly linked to the Characteristics of Effective Learning.
