As a Trust we ensure the learning adventure begins in nursery for many of our children.
Proverbs 22:6 Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
In June 2022, our Cygnets Pre-School was deemed to be Outstanding by OFSTED.
"Children in the early years get off to an impressive start. Leaders have ensured that the learning opportunities for children in pre-school and Reception are of exceptional quality. Children communicate using a highly ambitious level of language and vocabulary. They show this through their problem-solving and creative play where their curiosity is extended through carefully considered adult interactions. Leaders ensure that there is no limit put on what the children can achieve. Phonics is taught right from the start. This prepares children very well for their learning in key stage 1 and beyond. Leaders ensure that learning to read and developing a love of reading continue throughout the school. It builds on the firm foundations started in early years. Pupils read daily and enjoy listening to adults read to them. They are keen to discuss the different books they read through the curriculum." OFSTED 2022
