Welcome to the Foundation Stage

Mrs. Dhanjal, Miss Dadswell and Miss Keating are looking forward to teaching your children this year.



Please put your child's name on everything.

Remember to bring in your drinking water bottle everyday - filled with fresh water, no juice or squash please.

Please bring in a school book bag - not large rucksacks as we do not have the extra room.

Please bring in your child's reading book everyday with the home school contact book.


You can support your children by:

  • encouraging them to talk about what they are learning at school.
  • reading regularly with your child and writing in their home contact book.
  • encouraging them to talk through problems.
  • encouraging healthy habits, healthy snacks and regular exercise.
  • praising them when they do something well.
  • encouraging them to do their homework and hand it in on time.

Notice Board


P.E. is on Monday for Class 1, Tuesday for Class 3 and Wednesday for Class 2. Please make sure your child is not wearing earrings or jewellery on these days. However, there are times when this is subject to change due to other events happening within the school.


Please bring in some small boxes and tubes (no toilet roll tubes please) for junk modelling. We would also like any old road atlases and comics. These will be used in our role play area and for creative activities.

Parents- this is a useful link to find out more about your child's development.
