It is important to us that all children should feel safe and secure at the start of their time in school. We provide a consistent relationship across all aspects of time in school as we believe this is important in shaping children's regard for themselves and others. Values such as honesty, being fair, being truthful and taking care of people and possessions are encouraged.
In the Foundation Stage children work on 3 prime areas: Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
As children grow, the prime areas help them develop skills in 4 further important areas. These are Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

The children learn to respect different cultures and customs through art, music, play, stories and RE. The curriculum develops an awareness of the lives and work of people both in the school and in the wider community. It also develops an awareness of change over time through talking about their own growth and family events. Children learn to read and write through meaningful activities.
