Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery / Reception) is for children aged three to five years old and is the first stage of their education.

The key focus during this part of the national curriculum is on teaching them routine and easing them into the idea of learning in a structured environment.

A lot of the activities your child will undertake will be play-based, with more formal teaching not starting until they begin Year 1.

The Early Years Foundation Stage was introduced to provide a framework for pre-school settings.

Its play-based form of learning, which may be very different from your experience of starting school, is the result of lengthy research. The Foundation Stage recognises that children need to be able to use concrete experiences to provide the building blocks for their learning, so with that in mind it utilises play, modelling, painting, investigating and cooking as the mediums for learning.

Our Early Years team is led by Mrs Mullen, who is also our Deputy Headteacher and our SENDCo.

Little Saints - Nursery

Our Nursery is called Little Saints. We accept children from the term after their third birthday.

All Saints’ First School works in partnership with All Saints’ Kids Club to provide complete wraparound provision for all 3 and 4 year old children. All children are entitled to 15 hours Nursery provision from the term AFTER their 3rd birthday. In addition, parents may be eligible for an additional 15 hours Nursery provision (or may choose to pay for this provision if not eligible).

All Saints’ Kids Club offers before and after the school day (Breakfast and Tea Club) provision. This is usually paid provision. However, unused childcare hours can also be used for this provision.

Together, All Saints’ School and All Saints’ Kids Club offer provision for 5 days per week from 7.30am to 6pm in the following way.


Breakfast Club (Kids Club): 7.30am to 9.15am
