A child-centred, collaborative environment

Our classroom environments are child-centred and designed to allow for flexibility, collaboration and independence. The aim is to shape our environment to better reflect a 21st century workspace that promotes social interaction, communication and self-regulation. 

A caring, supportive and responsive EYFS

Our Early Years environment is caring, supportive and responsive to children’s individual needs. We allow our children to play and explore with a particular focus on the outdoor environment.

Playing outside gives children first-hand contact with weather, seasons, and the natural world, and outdoor environments offer children freedom to explore, use their senses, and be physically active and curious.

We have a School Nursery!

Early Birds Nursery is a popular school nursery for 2, 3 and 4 year old’s, 

The nursery offers three attendance options across the 5-day week.
