Our governors play a crucial role in assisting the development of the academy and support with setting the vision and strategic direction of the academy, holding the principal to account for its educational performance and ensuring financial resources are well spent. The role provides important support and challenge to staff as we continually look to develop and improve for the benefit of all students. If you would like more information or to apply to be considered, please email our Clerk to the Governors at by 22 January 2019. We look forward to hearing from you.

Welcome back! We hope you have all had a fantastic Summer break. 

We are looking forward to an exciting Autumn term together smiley



Miss Palmer, Miss Prosolek and Miss Throssell  work with the children in F2. 


Mrs Warnes, Mrs Wilson and Miss Taylor work with the children in F1. (Mrs Warnes Mon/Tues/Weds and Mrs Wilson Thurs/Fri.)


Mrs Riley works with both classes each day. 


F2 children should bring their reading books and diaries everyday and they will need PE kits which can stay in school all week.


F1 children do not need a PE Kit. They can borrow a school library book every Thursday (this needs to be returned before a new one is lent out). We hope that you enjoy reading stories together frown it is really important for children's development.


All children need a water bottle every day.

Our topic this term is...


'This is me'

We will spend the first few weeks all getting to know each other and getting used to new routines so the first topic is going to be all about ourselves, our families and people who are special to us.


Then after the settling in period our topic will be...

'Traditional tales'

We will read lots of familiar books such as 'The three little pigs', 'Three billy goats gruff, 'Goldilocks and the three bears' etc and the children's learning will centre around these stories.


We will post more about the activities the children will be doing shortly.

How children learn in the Early Years Foundation Stage 


The EYFS is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born up until the age of 5, their early years’ experience should be happy, active, exciting.


Through play and exploration, your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development. Children should mostly develop the 3 prime areas first. These are:

· Communication and language;

 · Physical development; and

· Personal, social and emotional development.


These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning. As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:

· Literacy;

· Mathematics;

· Understanding the world; and

· Expressive arts and design.

Maths at home


Please see the leaflet below which aims to give parents ideas about the sorts of things you can do with your children to improve their confidence and attainment in Mathematics through every day, playful activities. 

Feel free to print or save the document below and let us know how you get on.
