Nursery at SPPS
Welcome to Southwark Park Primary School’s Nursery page!
We are pleased to offer either 15 or 30 free hours. We accept children from 3 years old and above. We will provide the children with a healthy nutritious lunch on the children’s full days. To see if you're eligible for 30 hours free childcare please click here.
Dragonfly class has a qualified teacher and EYP all with NVQ 3 or above. Our focus is to help children grow independently in all areas of learning and development.
Children are free to choose whether they want to take their learning inside or to our outside area. We support and encourage children to develop their communication and language skills by encouraging children to express and talk about their feelings and needs.
Your child will receive a home visit from their teacher and EYP to develop a strong partnership between home and school. We have regular stay and play sessions where parents are invited into the child’s class to take part in focused session; this may be about maths, reading etc.
Open evenings take place every Thursday via zoom from 4.00pm where the EYFS phase leader Ms Casey will show you around the environment and answer any questions you may have. To book a slot please click here. Please download our admissions form here and call our office to book your space for our open even as spaces are currently limited due to social distancing.
*Please check our term dates as open evenings will not run during school holidays.
At Southwark Park Primary School we believe that play underpins the delivery of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. Through play, our children explore and develop learning experiences which help them make sense of the world. They have the opportunity to think creatively alongside other children as well as on their own, and have many opportunities to communicate with others as they investigate and solve problems.
There are seven areas of learning. In order to fully participate and enjoy learning, children need plenty of energy and language to learn with others. The prime areas are of learning are:
-Communication and Language
-Personal, Social and Emotional Development
With these foundations in place, children are ready to explore and learn from the world around them. At Southwark Park Primary School, we create a rich and stimulating environment both inside and outside the classroom. This encourages children to take risks and immerse themselves in real and imaginary worlds.
We follow the Power of Reading scheme, which places high quality texts at the centre of the children’s learning. Books are chosen to reflect the children’s interests and expand their horizons.
Through well thought out and planned activities, our pupils are enthused by learning. They are excited about their writing, resilient in their problem-solving and motivated to share their creativity. The specific areas of learning are:
-Understanding the World
-Expressive Arts and Design
We want the best start for all of our children and know that our setting is the perfect place to start children on their school journey.
