Our school aims to provide a high quality curriculum and a broad range of stimulating and challenging experiences, within a child- centred environment which encourages independence and self-motivation.
A wide variety of structured and unstructured learning activities are provided indoors and outdoors to cater for all areas of learning and development and the new EYFS Developmental Matters are used to provide a framework for planning the curriculum and for setting appropriate goals.
Much of the teaching and learning is planned around children’s interests and Staff meet frequently to evaluate learning and to share their observations of children’s progress, interests and needs in order to develop the quality of provision. Themed or topic planning is based around children’s needs and interests.
The development of personal, social and emotional skills is particularly important and the children are generally well-behaved and demonstrate a caring attitude towards others. They know how to keep themselves safe and are able to follow rules.
The Nursery fully endorses and supports Birmingham City Council’s Education Service Equal Opportunities Statement and its policy on Inclusion.
The school is well resourced and has good facilities both indoors and outside and the curriculum includes activities in all areas of the school site.. The children have additional opportunities in the form of artists in residence; musical workshops; football coaches, visitors in school and external visits.
The school had a successful Ofsted inspection in February 2018. The Report states:
‘As a result of the high expectations of all children and the wide and exciting learning experiences, children are exceptionally well prepared for the move to the Reception Year in their next schools.’
‘The warmth and care you and your staff show towards children is superb and can clearly be seen in the exceptional relationships which exist between all children and staff.’
