Our Learning Environment
We are proud of our EYFS provison and all of the learning areas we have to offer our children.
Our children are able to explore and enjoy our huge partially covered outdoor area, with gardening, sand building and a mud kitchen. The children also have access to their own play pen area where they can use bikes and other equipment during the lunch break. Inside the classroom you will find a make believe play area, a creative zone and a special area for your children to sit and read. Our library is constantly being updated, so there will be plenty of choices of books for our staff to read with your children.
We ensure that all of our play areas are kept safe and clean. The toys and resources provided are all in line with what we teach in the EYFS curriculum and latest research in child development.
We have toilets and changing facilities on site.
KS1 and KS2
We equip each of our classrooms with the resources and technology our teachers need to ensure that your children are getting the most of their education with us. We believe that sensory learning and exploration is key to creating those long lasting memories, and helps consolidate the day's knowledge.
Every classroom is fitted with an interactive whiteboard. We know that some of our children will be kinetic learners, they understand by doing, therefore we want to involved our pupils as much as we can in their lessons, by getting them involved in writing on the board and using learning resources digitally. The Academy has a class set of laptops which teachers are able to book.
Having a reading corner in each of our classrooms, and of course a fully equipped library, is important to us. Nothing can spark the imagination and creativity like getting lost in the world of literature and we want our young people to feel enthused by the possibilities of reading. We try to make these areas open and comfortable for our pupils.
In our outside play area we have a variety of set ups designed to harbour creative playtimes. This includes a KS1 play area, a climbing wall, a Forest area and pirate ship structure.
Our school hall is used for assemblies, drama and indoor physical education. We have a fully retractable climbing frame and varied gym equipment to help our pupils build core strength and maintain flexibility. We have a staged area for assemblies and drama in the hall which pupils are allowed to make use of during drama lessons. Our young people deserve to shine and having that chance to build confidence on the stage will set them up with the public speaking skills that will see them through secondary education.
