Our unique PREP group
We offer a unique weekly preparation group led by our Foundation Stage teacher, Mrs Ashton, which runs for the entire summer term. The aim of the group is to make the children as comfortable and confident about starting school as possible, they become familiar with their classroom, teacher and teaching assistants while getting to know their peers. The children get lots of free time to play, get to know one another and build positive relationships, while engaging in activities in the classroom and the purpose built outside area too. The children will be able to develop their skills using our giant Ipad to play music together and play some educational games. If you would like to see the group in action please contact the school office.
We hold open mornings during the Autumn term. Dates will be confirmed on our website and via local advertising at the start of this term. If you are not available on these dates please call the school office to make an appointment, visits to the school are always welcomed.
