Sharing your child’s successes with you


We hope that you have received a letter with details on how to access Seesaw, an app we are trialing which helps us keep you informed with all of the brilliant things your child has been up to at school. 


Whilst we get the app up and running we will be uploading a little bit less on to this page of the website, so Seesaw is the place to go for all the latest news/ pictures please.  We will however, still upload some of our highlights and best bits to this page every half term :) 


We hope you like the app. If you have any feedback then please do get in touch because we would love to hear your thoughts.

                                     Our Learning Environment


We are so lucky to have such an amazing free flow layout In Early Years and have experienced many different activities during COOL (Carry On Our Learning) time this term. As we are not able to invite parents into school we wanted to give you a sneak peak into how our areas are set up and share with you your children’s wonderful work that we have put on display. We hope you enjoy looking at them as much as we have loved creating them!

Zone Board


Each day all of the children start with their picture on green. If they are spotted following our class rules or demonstrating one of our school values they get moved up the zone board to silver and receive a sticker. If the same child is spotted a second time their picture gets moved up to gold and they get to take home a gold medal!


The zone board also consists of an orange and red zone. Orange is used when a warning has been given and a child persists on displaying an unwanted behaviour. Red is only used if a child needs a little 'time out'.


In Early Years we focus on praise as much as possible and love to reward your child's fantastic behaviour and effort! We can't wait to see lots of children reach the gold zone!
