A Wonderful Learning Environment

We are incredibly proud of the environment we have created for our pupils, which encourages curiosity and exploration. We offer all our facilities and resources and encourage pupils to engage in learning activities of their choice with increasing independence.

The classrooms and the outdoor playgrounds include specific learning areas with educational materials to stimulate all senses: sand, water, playdough, construction material, books, technology and musical instruments. Every activity, whether initiated by children or teachers, leads to pupils’ academic, social and personal development.

In EYFS, we focus on three prime areas of learning and development:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development

Additionally, there are four specific areas of learning:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

However, we value all areas of learning and development equally and understand that they are interconnected, depend on each other and should not be taught in isolation from one another.

Pupils of all ages have outstanding communication skills. These are developed in the EYFS, where a wide range of activities promote their speaking and listening, encourage their reading and enable them to acquire early writing skills.
