F2

Foundation Year

Welcome to F2

In F2 we pride ourselves on supporting the first steps of your child’s education. Our aim is to provide a safe, caring and fun atmosphere encouraging the children to gain independence in their learning and fulfill their potential.  Our curriculum is based around child initiated topics which encourage the children to explore and learn through play.  At present we have 3 classes with a high ratio of support staff.

Punctuality/Attendance – Children should be in their class line for 8.48 am to be collected by their classteacher. It would be helpful if parents could step back once the whistle has been blown to allow more space for the lines. Please ensure that your child is not late for school as they can miss importanat information given out at the start of the day. Regular attendance at school is important to ensure your child does not miss work covered because it is very difficult for your child to catch up on work missed.
