Foundation Stage

Welcome to the Foundation Stage!


This is an exciting and important year in school for our children. We encourage them to be independent learners, gaining confidence in all areas of school life and contributing to the ethos of our school.


There are two classes in Foundation Stage:




Teaching Assistant (TA)


Mrs Bhattacharjee

Miss Lee


Mrs Henderson


Mrs Blanchette/Mrs Payne



We have one intake in the Foundation Stage in September (see the office for more details). To prepare the children for their new school life, we organise a pre school visit, where they can meet the Foundation Stage team and their new classmates. This is also an opportunity for them to become familiar with the classroom and other areas of the school. The Parents are invited to an informal meeting where they will meet the Foundation Stage team and the Head and Deputy. During this meeting they will be given useful information about the workings of the school.


Our school is taking part in a trial of Reception Baseline Assessment. For more information about Baseline Assessment, please follow this link:
