Frequently Asked Questions
The Foundation Stage door is open from 8.40 to 9 am for children to free flow into school. School finishes at 3.10.
We have 3 classes of up to 30 children in Foundation Stage.

These are Red, Yellow and Blue Class.

Look out for details of your child's class in the induction pack.

The class lists are put together extremely carefully, taking into full consideration parental requests, advice from nursery, nursery friendship groups and ensuring an even mixture of girls and boys as well as Summer and Winter born children.

Obviously, we don’t yet know your children, and while it is most likely that these class groups will travel throughout the school years in these classes, they are not set in stone.

From time to time, for a variety of reasons, we find we need to make necessary adjustments and changes after the Foundation Year and before Year 1 in order to ensure the best possible journey through school.
