Rawcliffe Primary School does not currently have its own nursery, but we would be delighted for your child to attend our nursery at Rawcliffe Bridge Primary school.
Please use this link to a DfE document called 'What to Expect When'. This is a really useful guide for parents, to help in supporting their children in the next steps in their learning.
Children start in the Nursery at the beginning of the term which comes after their third birthday. The free, government funded, sessions run from 8:50am to 12:00 noon.
Organisation of Nursery
During the session the children "freeflow" between the different areas of nursery and are supported in their learning by the staff in those areas. Sometimes staff will set up activities for the children to do and encourage children to take part (adult led activities). Most of the time the children will select their own resources and play activities in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance (child initiated activities) Children can access areas of provision both inside and in the outside area. Children are always encouraged to look after the resources and tidy up after themselves and to share and play collaboratively where appropriate. There is a group time of approximately 15 minutes during each session where children listen to stories, sing rhymes and songs, have circle time and play simple phonic and number games. They also have a group story just before going home.
