Welcome to our Early Years Foundation Section
Our Early Years includes a Nursery and Reception class. We have an exciting, friendly and nurturing setting where children learn through their play and exploration, within our enabling environment.
As children progress from Nursery into Reception class they will be directed to work within groups and develop skills to ensure they are ready to begin Year 1, with lots of focus on phonics, reading, writing and maths.
We record children’s learning using Tapestry, an online resource that allows parents to see their child’s progress and add to their learning journey.
Children also have the opportunity to develop their physical skills working with a coach and yoga instructor.
We encourage reading for pleasure from the very start of your child’s time in school – we will organise for children to bring home Bedtime Story Bags each week with lots of exciting books for the family to share and enjoy.
At North Park Primary the curriculum is planned in the EYFS to follow the statutory framework. All learning is planned according to the individual child, their interests and the way in which they learn, through discovery and exploration. We arrange lots of interesting and exciting activities to spark the children’s interest adn enjoyment. The statutory EYFS framework can be found by visiting the Early Years Foundation Stage website.
Mrs Willcock is the Reception class teacher and EYFS Lead.
Mrs Nattrass teaches in Reception each morning.
Mrs Summerill teaches in Nursery and also in Reception in afternoons.
Mr Fothergill, Mrs MacDonald, Miss Diaz and Miss Archment are the EYFS support staff.

Children are able to join our Nursery unit in the term after they have their 3rd birthday. If you would like to apply for a place in our nursery, please download the form below and return to school. Alternately you may call at the school office for a form.We will arrange an opportunity for your child to visit the Nursery and get used to the setting when they are ready to begin. At present we offer morning and afternoon sessions and when there is space available we are able to offer 30 hours childcare.
Reception admissions are managed by the Local Authority. For Reception children we organise two visit sessions in the summer term and an information session for parents.
