Schools and early years providers have to follow a structure of learning, development and care for children from birth to five years old. This is called the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and it enables your child to learn through a range of activities.
In our Foundation Stage we have a Nursery with places for 30 children and 2 Reception classes. In the stage we ensure:
Starting school is a very big step for your child and for you. The way your child settles into school is very important and we do our best to help each child come to school happily and enjoy learning here.
We think it is important to establish a partnership with our parents/carers so that together we can help each child settle in and do his/her best. We do hope you find the information on our website helpful. If you wish to talk to somebody or have a tour, please contact the office.

Early Learning Goals
At the end of Reception, children are assessed against a set of Early Learning Goals to see if they are developing in line with age related expectations. This assessment is an informal process. The outcome of the assessment will be shared with parents and used by your child's Year 1 teacher to tailor learning to your child's strengths and areas for development.
Our voluntary aided status means that we pay a contribution to the London Diocesan Board for Schools as they are responsible for the maintenance of the school. We ask parents/carers for a contribution to the fund each year to improve the school. The Governors set the charge at the beginning of each school year and it can be paid yearly or termly. The set amount for 2016-2017 is £35.
