The Learning Environment

We provide a learning environment that is:

  • Safe
  • Welcoming
  • Nurturing
  • Stimulating
  • Child-centred

Foundation Stage is led by highly skilled, enthusiastic, friendly and caring staff.

Every child is important.  We will plan together to meet their unique learning styles while encouraging each child to develop intellectually, personally, physically, socially, emotionally and at their own pace.

We lay the foundations for successful Active Learning which is skills focused and age appropriate. This practical, hands-on approach enables each child to achieve their potential by encouraging them to:

  • experiment
  • create
  • explore
  • have fun
  • self manage
  • imagine
  • ask questions
  • investigate
  • evaluate
  • apply knowledge and skills to everyday life

Children learn best by:

  • Practically ‘doing’
  • Using their own curiosity
  • Learning through creative & challenging play
  • Reporting back
  • Using a wide range of resources
  • Developing relationships- children & adults
  • Always ‘Have a Go!’

(Adapted from ‘Understanding the Foundation Stage’ CCEA, 2006)

Learning Through Play:

  • Looking
  • Listening
  • Talking
  • Doing

Partnerships with Parents/Carers

We value parents/carers as the child’s first educator.

We encourage open and honest communication between pupils, parents and staff.

By listening, respecting, working and learning together, we look forward to making your child’s first school days happy and successful.

Parental Partnerships

  • Open Home School Links
  • Learning Packs
  • Learning at Home

P1 Easter Fun Activity


Mothers' Day

P1A would like to share our wonderful Mother’s Day assembly videos. The children have worked so hard and we are a little sad that we won’t be able to do our Mother’s Day class assembly, but we are very excited to share our little videos. Mum’s ask your children to sing our songs: ‘I love you mummy’ (tune of You are my Sunshine) ‘MUMMY-O’ (BINGO was his name O) & ’We love Mummy’s’ (Frère Jacques) & Say our Mother’s Day poems –‘My Mum’ Remind the children the best way to show our mum we love them is to be good and kind! Have a wonderful Mother’s Day all our amazing mums! We love you too!
