Our pupils’ educational journey begins in Phase 1. Our goal is to ensure that your child is happy at school; taught in a homely atmosphere where there is a commitment to forge a close and positive relationship between home and school. Generally, children are admitted to the nursery class on a part-time basis during the term after their third birthday. Similarly, pupils start Reception the term after their fourth birthday. There are three classes for Years 1 and 2 and three classes for years 3 and 4. The main focus in Phase 1 is to develop a curriculum adhering to the principles of the Foundation Phase and to further develop and extend this practice to pupils in years 3 and 4. We will ensure that all pupils will have received a broad range of valuable experiences that will provide them with a solid foundation before they move on to Phase 2.
