The Learning Environment

The school is in an enviable position of having a stimulating and exemplary learning environment indoors and outdoors. We share our practice with many visitors from other schools. Trainees teachers from universities ask to see the environment and we have worked hard to ensure that the quality is maintained at all times.
 "Resources are superb and the classrooms are
exciting places in which to learn. Staff and
leaders make extra sure that every aspect of
the school’s environment is well planned and
used for learning. Wonderful displays on the
walls of the school celebrate children’s learning
extremely positively." Ofsted 2017 
Children learn best when they are enjoying themselves and when they feel safe and valued. In our Nursery all areas of continuous provision both indoors and outdoors are regularly enhanced with exciting and stimulating resources to encourage curiosity and independence. We work hard to create an environment which is rich in learning and fun. The Lead Teacher oversees the careful planning of the curriculum to provide a broad and balanced programme of development to extend the children’s learning, to promote awe and wonder and meet the needs of all our individual children. Activities are planned to enhance children’s speech, language and communication skills and help them learn how to make friends and to share and take turns. We offer challenges to the children where they can take risks in a safe environment. We also have visitors to nursery to enhance the children’s learning which include musicians, a potter, the Lancashire Hawks and Owls and the community police.
