EYFS 2017-2018

Welcome to Early Years Foundation Stage


Our classroom is a place where everyone is treated equally, encouraged and respected. We believe that all children should be able to achieve their full potential academically, socially and emotionally. We are committed to our classroom being a safe and inclusive place where learning is nurtured and encouraged in a happy, caring and fun environment. We all work for our classroom to be a happy place where good behaviour is expected and all children enjoy their educational journey. In EYFS we believe in nothing but the best!

The children love it when Tig visits our classroom.  He is our wonderful school dog.  Tig has a very special postbox for the children to post pictures and letters for him to see.
