EYFS bid successful :

We were successful in our application for grant funding to support and develop EYFS in our local area. A partnership of some of our local primaries and nurseries are working together to ensure that young children start school fully equipped in areas of speech and language, physical development, independence and confidence. The partnership is looking to Forest School teaching as a means of developing fine and gross motor development, risk taking, turn taking as well as language development and through an accredited training programme  and working with qualified speech and language therapists and other health professionals  we aim to meet the growing language needs of our children from a very early age
