#OurHillfields

We are working with the Violence Reduction Unit on a Community Project. The preschool children have had sessions on protective behaviours. Our school community has worked together to make hands to hug the building during the 10 days of peace. There will be hands in other places too.

There are lots of activities happening to promote peace and community.

Look out for your hands ūüôā

Activities to try at home

Hungry little minds

Even some of the smallest changes can make a big difference to your child.

Children love it when you chat, play and read with them, even if they do not understand everything. Whatever the time and wherever you are, you can turn almost anything into a game.

And every little thing you do together will help set them up for the day they start school.

There are lots of ideas on the following website

April 2020 2 year old funded places

If you are come in and talk to our team. Bring your child’s birth certificate and red book.
We still have places available this year. 

We have recently had our Ofsted report and continue to be an Outstanding Nursery School. The nursery school is the only one in Coventry and we offer a unique provision led by qualified teachers.

Once you have secured your 2 year old place you automatically move through to our 3 year old Preschool class. This gives the children a clear transition and continuity to their early years education.
The Nursery class your child attends does not affect admission to school, it cannot be used within the criteria.

We work closely with Sidney Stringer Primary School and other schools to support transition into primary school.

We have a number of spaces in our Orchard class available for those families entitled to the 30 hour offer.

The 30 hour offer is made up of 2 parts.
