We are delighted to confirm that Charmouth Primary School will be admitting children from the age of 3 from September 2019. This will be as part of a dedicated EYFS class created within the current set up of the school and will operate during school term time. This dedicated EYFS class will include children in both reception and nursery cohorts, ages 3-5. The classroom is already set up to promote learning using the Early Years Foundation Stage, the curriculum for this age range, and will promote a combination of child led play and learning through games and play led by a qualified teacher and experienced early years teaching assistant.
Provision will include two nursery sessions daily, 8:55 – 11:55 and 12:25 – 3:25, with an optional lunch club from 11:55 to 12:25; therefore the opportunity of full day sessions 8:55 – 3:25.
The EYFS Class will cater for up to 11 nursery children per session, therefore with a maximum class size of 26 including children in reception. The school recommends a minimum of three sessions a week for nursery aged children to support them to be able to fully settle and thrive.
The nursery cohort will be integrated fully into the school; as such, children attending the nursery will wear the Charmouth Primary School uniform with the variation of a navy blue polo shirt.
Parents are able to all or part of their entitled hours at Charmouth, with a fee for additional hours as indicated in the session booking form.
Visits to the school are always welcome via appointment through the school office.
We are all looking forward to this exciting next step for Charmouth Primary School.
