The foundation stage is for children from 0 – 5 years old and has its own framework. This includes our Mulberries Pre-school , for children aged 2-4, in their own purpose built building and two Reception classes, Fir and Pine for children aged 4-5.
Our Foundation Stage has 3 teachers and a number of teaching assistants and playleaders and where necessary, learning support assistants for individual children.
Planning is thematic and differentiated to suit the needs of the children in the different classes. To suit the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage, learning is undertaken both indoors and out and is based on learning through play with additional adult led activities and circle times to support learning.
