Pre-Prep Overview

Every Child Matters

In the Pre Prep (Years 1 and 2) we maintain the rapid rate of skill development in English and maths, that children started in the EYFS. Furthermore, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum which goes way beyond the National Curriculum to include geography, history, science, ICT, French, German, art, design, drama, music and PE.

We believe that every child should feel happy, secure, valued and confident. We provide a supportive and secure environment in which each child can flourish, learn at their own pace, and in their own individual way. So we keep the class sizes small, and as well as the teacher, we have at least one teaching assistant per class to ensure individual attention.

Teaching Structure

The majority of the lessons are taught by the class teacher. ICT, music, PE, drama, German and French are all taught by specialist teachers. We stimulate and encourage children’s development and enjoyment of learning through a variety of different teaching styles and activities in secure indoor and outdoor settings.

We monitor each child’s progress to ensure they are achieving their full potential. We see school and home as a vital partnership to aid each child’s development.
