Our Foundation Stage promotes self initiated learning and encourages children to become confident, independent learners who can identify what they need to advance their own learning. Whole class, small group and individual teaching is used to ensure that every child achieves their full potential. Before children come into school it is our aim for them to meet their new teacher in their pre school setting and they will be invited into school for a taster session. Parents too, will be given opportunities to meet the Early Years Foundation Stage Teacher, the class Teaching Assistant as well as the Headteacher and other key people they may come into contact with at school. We find that children are then happy to come into school and the transition process is a smooth and positive experience for all.
