Our children in Potter Class are happy, confident little learners who are making excellent progress! When people walk into our mixed Nursery and Reception class their prevailing comments are how happy, engaged and purposeful the children are, and we have many visitors – members of the Senior Leadership Team, parents and prospective parents, colleagues from other year groups and other CET schools.
It is generally accepted that children’s early experiences have the biggest impact on their later life so in Potter Class, we aim to provide our children with everything they need to help them achieve their personal best.
Every day we welcome our children into an environment which is warm and caring, where we foster a sense of belonging and provide a learning environment sensitive and responsive to the child’s needs, feelings and interests. We are supportive of the child’s own efforts and independence and we are consistent in setting clear boundaries. Early Maths and Literacy skills are very important to our children and we choose to teach them in ways which are meaningful for each child. We have engaging activities both in our classroom and in our outdoor area – which is filled with fabulous wooden equipment, and our well-planned areas of continuous provision are an essential tool in supporting children’s learning, both independently and alongside an adult.
We promote and develop resilience, responsibility and respect both within and outside the school gates. I am very proud to say the children in Potter Class embrace our core values and set a very high standard for children their age.
All around the world
All Children in Potter Class have a ‘Tapestry’ account. This will enable you to see what your child has been doing throughout the week. It is also a useful way of communicating important messages.
All children look very smart in their school uniform but we do ask parents to ensure all items of clothing have names written in them – young children do like to collect jumpers! If you find you have another child’s clothing, please can you return to school.
Just a reminder that the school day begins at 8:50am. The door will be open from 8:40am. The school day finishes at 3:15pm. If you are late or need to collect your child out of these hours, please report to the Main Entrance.
