Following the overwhelmingly positive response to our initial consultation on a nursery school at St James Primary, the Governing Body has commenced its second stage consultation on lowering the school age range from 4-11 years to 2-11 years, to enable the nursery to open in September 2022.
The Nursery will be part of a Foundation Stage Unit (FSU) for children aged 2 to 5 years, enabling them to benefit from our early years educational expertise and leadership, and transition between nursery and reception classes – proven to enhance their life-long learning skills and emotional wellbeing. Children will enjoy their own well-equipped nursery room and attached outdoor play area, plus access to our forest school, rich and broad early years curriculum, and wider outdoor play areas.
We would love to hear whether you support this change to the school's age range and your reasoning, to inform our decision to go ahead with the Nursery and Foundation Stage Unit in September 2022.
