Early Years

We are excited by the growth of our Early Years Department and the development of our setting. We now have two functioning Early Years rooms to meet the needs of different developmental stages. Lion cubs is our sensory/play based room where the children are exposed to tailor-made activities to meet their sensory needs. These children will be taught all the basic stems of Literacy and Numeracy through the use of play and movement. All the activities will encompass the core subjects which the EYFS curriculum requires but delivered in a manner accessible for the students. The students will have frequent movement breaks and regular Occupational Therapy in their daily routine to aid their communication and social skills.

The Tigers’ classroom has been set up to incorporate more structure and a sense of adult–initiated learning. The students in Tigers’ class will follow a graphic timetable and set structure of the day. The structured free- flow sessions will have specific activities set up for assessing and challenging the students development and individual progression. Our aim with the Tigers group is to give the children the skills they need to transition through the rest of Primary.

Our Early Years Department aims to help our children develop as unique individuals who constantly learn, develop resilience and are capable and confident. We help the children to develop, play and learn in enabling environments in which their experiences respond to their individual needs. The key factor is that our children in Lion Cubs and Tigers learn at their own rate. The start of school is such a vital part of children’s development and provides the tools to transition throughout the school years with ease and enjoyment.
