Foundation Stage

Children are admitted into Nursery as soon after their third birthday as we can but sometimes we are full and need to have a waiting list. The list is kept in the school office; please make sure that you have filled in a form to enrol your child before his/her third birthday. When a place is available a member of the Foundation Stage Team will arrange to visit you and your child at home. A booklet telling you more about the Nursery will be given to you.

From September 2018 we will be offering provision for 2 year olds. If you wish to enquire about this, please speak to the school office or the nursery staff.


Enhanced Mainstream Provision for Cognition and Learning (EMS)


Places in the EMS class are ONLY allocated through the SEN panel. Having a place in school, does not mean a place in the EMS.


Entry Criteria (through the Local Authority)


The primary need is learning.
Children are experiencing barriers to their learning such as:

Speech and language delay

General delay (poor visual discrimination, short concentration spans, poor gross/fine motor skills, poor working memory)

Mild autistic tendencies or ADHD and emotional problems such as low self-esteem – mild behaviour problems due to learning.

Children are making little or no progress over a period of time despite the school deploying resources to support the child over that period.

Children are working at levels substantially below that of their peers.

Once a child is allocated a place in the EMS, a period of transition will begin, where the teacher will visit the child in their own setting.
The child will then visit our school and meetings with parents and school staff (teacher, SENDCo etc) will be set up.
