We provide a warm and welcoming environment where the pupils are taught by qualified nursery nurses who work under the direction of an experienced teacher. The School follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which has seven main areas of learning. The implementation of this curriculum is rooted in the ethos of the School and the experience and beliefs of its staff.
The Foundation Stage
The curriculum guidance for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) covers seven areas of learning:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development
- Communication and Language
- Understanding the World
- Creative Arts and Design
Our curriculum is in line with the above curriculum guidance and Coventry City Council’s policy for Early Years education.
As early year practitioners, our role is to help children develop their independence and their confidence, to build upon the knowledge they already possess.
Children do not all learn in the same way or at the same rate, so we aim to provide learning experiences which take account of children’s individual needs and interests.
Times of a school day
The pupils attend either 5 morning or 5 afternoon sessions.
We do offer some all-day places.
- 08:30 – 11:30 morning session
- 12:15 – 15:15 afternoon session
- 08:30 – 15:15 all day session
Morning / afternoon sessions routine
All day sessions
Children attending the nursery all day may be eligible to receive 30-hour childcare funding which is subject to criteria set by the government, please visit https://childcare-support.tax.service.gov.uk for further information, or to apply for this funding.
Children who wish to attend the nursery all day but who are not eligible for the 30-hour funding, will be charged at a rate of £15.00 per additional nursery session (£5.00 per hour). You will be invoiced once a month.
Lunch time childcare
If you choose for your child to remain in school during lunch time you be required to pay £4.00 per day to cover the lunch time childcare, this applies to both children who are eligible for the 30-hour funding and those who are not.
Unfortunately, we are currently unable to provide school meals for the children who attend nursery all day, parents will be required to provide a packed lunch.
If your child attends a morning or afternoon session you can extend their session to cover the lunchtime period from 11:30—12:15, the £4.00 per day childcare charge will apply and you will be required to provide a packed lunch.

Our Day in Nursery
On arrival at school, children are encouraged to find their name card and hang it on their coat peg.
There are a wide range of activities awaiting the children when they enter the classroom and they are encouraged to choose where they would like to play.
We have a large outdoor area. The garden is open to the children daily during “Child initiated sessions”. Children are able to work outside if they wish to do so and will need to have suitable clothing-wellingtons and warm clothing in winter; sun hats and sun cream (applied at home prior to the session please) in summer.
During the nursery session, the children will have time for free choice play and also participate in adult led activities, stories, games and music.
At our school we follow the ‘Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)’. The EYFS framework sets the UK standards for the learning and development for children from birth to five. To support our provision and planning for learning and development we follow the ‘EYFS profile’ and we use ‘Early Years outcomes’ to support our judgements.
