Covid-19 Information

A ‘bubble’ will be a whole class of 30 or can be a year group of 60.

We are continuing with staggered start and finish times. It is anticipated that this will remain in place throughout Term 1 at least.
For parents with children in more than one year group we will be introducing an optional 8.30am drop off and 3.30 collection – please contact the school office if you wish to use this service.

Breakfast Club (7.30-8.30am) and After School Club (3.30-6pm) will reopen to all children. However, we do ask that this is booked in advance for the whole term using our online system. Children will continue to remain at tables for their activities within their bubble
during these clubs.

We are clear about the measures that need to be in place to create safer environments in school to minimise any risks from coronavirus.

An Engaging Curriculum

Within carefully selected topics, our children make meaningful links between Art, Music, History, Geography, Design Technology, English, Mathematics and Science.

They are helped to understand how these subjects bring a deeper understanding to their lives, other people and the world. 

Children are given the opportunity to attend numerous educational visits linked to their topic and are regularly visited by a variety of interesting professional who give talks or provide exciting workshops.

Wrap Around Care

We recognise the importance of providing childcare options to assist working parents.

Finberry Primary School is open from 7:30am – 6:00pm Monday to Friday.

As well as our Breakfast Club and After School Club, we offer a range of free Extra-Curricular Clubs every term that children can take part in after school.

Engaging and rich EYFS experiences

Our children are excited and motivated to engage in rich and challenging experiences, both inside and outside of their classroom. We have high ambitions for all of our children, with staff planning carefully to meet each child’s needs and stage of development, ensuring our children get off to a great start in their education. Child initiated play based learning is at the heart of our practice. where we carefully plan for opportunities, activities and experiences that develop all of our children into independent, resilient and confident learners.

We have a School Nursery!

Early Birds Nursery is a school nursery for 2, 3 and 4 year old’s led by a qualified Teacher with three attendance options across the 5-day week.

A LOVE of reading

Our broad and balanced curriculum ensures that teaching of reading is tailored to the children, with a clear understanding of the skills needed to be a successful reader and how these develop during each term and year.  Teachers are clear of the barriers to learning to read and are forensic in identifying these in individual pupils and groups and they use a range of strategies to overcome these, including careful deployment of skilled adults.
