In Year One we aim to make the transition from Early Years to Key Stage One as seamless as possible. Our target is to provide a broad curriculum where all children are able to succeed and make progress. We are a team of very dedicated, energetic and enthusiastic staff, who enjoy working together to provide the best possible learning experiences for the children in our care.

Our number one aim is to ensure every child enjoys school and develops a passion for learning throughout their time with us. We dedicate time throughout the year to build strong and positive relationships with all the children in our year group, so that we know them as individuals. We find out what makes them smile, and should they need some extra support and care we are always happy to give it.


We promote a topic based curriculum and aim to provide lessons that are engaging, meaningful and fun. In order to achieve this, we carefully plan a progressive curriculum, guided by the children's interests and questions, to ensure all individuals can succeed. We endeavour to provide many hands on experiences and to make the curriculum relevant and real to the children.


We make our classrooms friendly and accessible to promote independent learning and also bright and stimulating; a welcoming environment for all. Our displays are both interactive and purposeful and give the children the opportunity to showcase their excellence.


By the end of Year One, our aim is for every child to have made fantastic progress, to have grown in confidence, to have developed the skills to solve problems independently and to want to challenge themselves as learners. We are passionate about providing an excellent level of education and developing every aspect of each child; not only their academic achievements but also their social and emotional well being.


We recognise the importance of parents/carers in their child's progress and endorse an open door policy, so please feel free to ask us any questions.


Charlotte Haley, Sam Dudley, Claire Clark, Heather Hobbs, Vicky Howard and all of the Year One Team
