Our Approach

Our Approach

The partnership between the staff and the parents is good.  The parents receive frequent information about their child’s progress through informal discussions, written reports and regular parents’ meetings“.  OFSTED

We introduce the children to a wide range of activities, stimulating their natural interest to learn facts and to acquire and perfect skills.  We encourage the children to be active and to choose equipment that interests them.  We have special sections for books, language,  number work, computers, puzzles, games, construction, practical life, a home corner with dressing-up, painting, drawing, cutting and sticking, modelling, nature and science, sensorial material, and sand and water.
The equipment has been chosen to aid development in specific areas, which include:

  • Concentration
  • Co-ordination
  • Sense of order
  • Hand dexterity
  • Independence
  • Social skills

The children also have plenty of opportunity to develop their creative, imaginative and investigative skills.  They always have a project to follow which includes many art and craft tasks, and opportunities to investigate aspects related to the topic.  When possible we  have visitors or organisations, linked to the project, come to the school.  We try to respond to each child’s individual needs.
