 Our unit is a safe, exciting and stimulating environment focusing on personalised learning for every child. Children can enjoy activities outside and inside every day, gaining skills in all areas of the curriculum. We take pride in our learning environment being clean, tidy and well resourced. We try to follow a ‘less is more’ ethic and encourage the children to take a lead in organising resources and tidying them away.

 

We teach 3 lessons per day. Phonics, Maths and Literacy. We also teach PE, RE, Music and ICT within the week. All these lessons follow the topic theme of the term

 

To support the learning of Phonics we use Letters and Sounds, the LCP scheme and Jolly phonics.

 

We have a new ‘Playscape’ which encourages investigation and exploration outside; children can enjoy the challenge of climbing up the rock wall or pumping the water through the steel dam. They learn independence whilst feeling supported by our staff. We offer inspire workshops and reading afternoons where parents are invited to spend time learning with their child.

 

School opening hours are 8:45am – 3:15pm
