Dear parents,

St Anne's is a two-form entry primary school with nursery provision.

We have carefully sequenced the school's curriculum to ensure our children's education begins in the first year of learning during St Anne's Nursery class.  St Anne's Nursery is the first year of a two-year Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS1), with the Reception Year being the second year of the two-year Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS2).  

If your child attends St Anne's Nursery and you meet the admission criteria, the transition into the Reception class,EYFS2, is seamless.  If your child attends a different Nursery Provider prior to attending St Anne's Reception Year Group, staff will work tirelessly to try to ensure as smooth a transition as possible.

Curriculum learning objectives for all aspects of the EYFS and National Curriculum have been carefully sequenced from EYFS1 to Year 6.  This enables all children, parents and staff to clearly see how learning begins and then how prior learning is built upon as children progress through each year group in school.

The school's curriculum knowledge organisers provide half-termly guidance to support children and families.
