Early Years

Our Early Years department is comprised of Nursery and Reception. 

The main point of entry for both cohorts is September. 

Our Nursery children are offered either a morning or an afternoon place.  Both sessions cross over during an extended lunchtime provision, allowing all the chance to integrate and enabling us to offer in excess of 15 hours provision per week.   With part time places, our Nursery can accommodate 52 pupils (26 in each session).    

From September 2017, some families will be entitled to 30 hours of Nursery provision.  At Roger de Clare, as well as working with local settings and childminders to offer high quality wrap around care, we will have some availability for 30 hours provision.  With full-time places, our Nursery can accommodate 26 pupils in total.    Additional places may be available where we have a combination of parents choosing part-time and full-time. 

In Reception, children stay all day.

Key persons:

Your child's class teacher is also known as his/her key person.  They are responsible for ensuring every child's learning and care is tailored to meet their individual needs.  The key person will engage and support parents and/or carers in guiding their child's development at home.  They can also identify and discuss how families can engage with specialist support, if appropriate.   The key persons (class teachers) are supported by teaching assistants and other adults in developing a personalised, appropriate and challenging curriculum to all learners. 

 

How can you contribute to your child's learning journey?

All the fun activities that you do with your child at home are important in supporting their learning and development, and have a really long lasting effect on your child’s learning as they progress through school. Talking to them helps them learn and understand new words and ideas. If you make the time everyday to do some of the following things with your child it will make a real difference to their confidence as a learner. Your knowledge about your child’s learning and development is hugely important, we need to work together to ensure your child achieves their best, so please do let us know about what your child does with you.

Here you will find copies of documents you can complete to share your child's interests and achievements with us.  These will be included in their learning journey.
