Lower School

The Lower School Phase is comprised of pupils from EYFS and KS1 and is divided into two classes – Seedlings and Acorns. Class teachers are Nicola French (Acorns) and Amanda Allmark-Snow (Seedlings). Pupils work across three classrooms with a team of highly skilled staff who support the whole phase.


We work closely with parents and carers to ensure a smooth transition and offer a joined-up service where children can access physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and nursing input within the class/school setting.  All children have access to swimming sessions using a heated pool and specialist swimming co-ordinators.

Staff have high expectations for every pupil. They work in partnership with parents to understand the special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) of each pupil. They know what makes pupils smile and what activities will engage their interest and curiosity to help them learn.
