Peregrines Nursery School provides a nurturing environment that promotes happy children whilst giving them the best educational start. Our highly experienced teachers plan challenging and fun lessons that will prepare each child for the next stage of their educational journey, whether that be moving directly through to Falcons School for Girls for the girls or for preparatory school assessments for the boys.
At Peregrines Nursery School, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and build on this by offering Forest School, Ballet, Music, Spanish and Physical Education lessons on a weekly basis taught by specialist teachers, plus many hours of fun, play-based learning.
The focus for younger children (two to three) will be on the prime areas of learning as defined by the Early Years Framework: Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. The younger children will have targeted input from their teachers during small group time with an emphasis on building their vocabulary, communication and social skills, as well as plenty of time to play together and have fun. Younger children will also have access to the specialist classes.
For the older children (three to four), the focus will be on extending their knowledge on the specific areas of learning including Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design as they prepare for transition into school. The children will have access to plenty of play opportunities but also have targeted input from their teachers such as Phonics and Maths sessions. The children will benefit from a range of specialist classes that provide them with a rich curriculum, supporting their overall development.
Each child is known by all staff at Peregrines Nursery and the learning is tailored to their individual needs. The pupils’ educational progress is carefully monitored and shared with parents using the programme 2Simple to keep them fully informed about their child’s development and parents evenings are held twice a year.
We are a warm and caring Nursery school, taking great pride in developing our pupils into happy, confident and kind individuals ready to meet the challenges of the next phase in their educational journey.
