St Anne's
The Early Years Foundation Stage
The Early Years Foundation Stage consists of a school Nursery and a Reception Class.
St. Anne’s has a Nursery which caters for 13 children in a morning or afternoon session.

Morning session 8.45am to 11.45am.
Afternoon session 12.30pm to 3.30pm.

The Reception Class follow the same session times as KS1 & KS2.

The school day starts at 8.45am with registration at 8.55 and ends at 3.15pm.

Children are admitted to St. Anne’s Nursery in the September after their third birthday.
Children are admitted to St. Anne’s Reception Class in the September after their fourth birthday. Home-school links are made prior to this as we wish to allay any worries and problems as early as possible and on entry the children are supported by an Early Years teacher and a qualified teaching assistant. The children experience all areas of learning, giving a sound foundation for school life.

The six main areas of learning are:

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Mathematical Development

Knowledge and Understanding of the world

Creative Development

Communication, Language and Literacy

Physical Development

Although the fundamental principle of a young child’s learning is through play, it is essential that these activities are purposeful. All pupils are assessed throughout the school year using the Foundation Stage Profile.

Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2
The rest of the school is organised in two Key Stages. Key Stage 1 is Year 1 and Year 2; Key Stage 2 is Year 3 to Year 6. Each class teacher is responsible for the education and welfare of their class. Children in Year 2 and Year 6 are given Standard Assessment Tests at the end of the school year.
The curriculum addressed in our school includes R.E. and the statutory National Curriculum for Core and Non-Core subjects.
