Class 1


A very warm welcome awaits in the Bramley Vale Nursery classroom. The children are supported and nurtured by Mrs Foston – the class teacher and the very experienced Higher Level Teaching Assistant – Miss Pickup and Teaching Assistants – Mrs Hopkinson and Mrs Dutton.

In Nursery our aim – First and foremost – is focused on settling the children into a predictable routine where they feel safe and happy.  We use a creative and structured approach to delivering a play based learning curriculum where our children learn and thrive.

Our children are at the centre of all that we do with particular emphasis on their communication skills, physical, social and emotional well-being, personal health and learning. We consider connections with family, communities, cultures and the natural world and how we can meet and respond to the needs of the child today and how we can lay strong foundations for their lives in the future.


Important reminders for parents

To facilitate the smooth running of your child’s learning in school and to maximise their potential we ask that you please ensure the following:

  • School uniform should be worn every day. You may place orders on school app. or visit the main office
  • Children need to come to school wearing PE kit on each Tuesday.
  • Snack money is 20p a day. Please ask your child to post monies in the yellow money box.
  • Please ensure your child has a complete change of named clothes in school and named wellies!
  • Name all your child’s belongings including: water bottles, shoes and clothes to avoid loss and disappointment.
  • Nursery Library day is Thursday- we swap books weekly. Please ensure library books & reading diaries are in school on Thursdays, so we count up home reading for the Reading Olympics. Your child is working towards earning pins and prizes!
  • Weather appropriate clothing is essential- a coat /hat , as we enjoy considerable time outdoors- no matter the weather!

We are always happy to discuss your child with you if you have any questions or concerns. We have an open door policy so do just come and see us! To also keep yourself updated, please check the school newsletter each week for upcoming events and the school blog on our website.
