Early Years Foundation Stage

Early Years encompasses Nursery and Reception classes and, for many of our pupils, is the first introduction to life at St Catherine’s.  They benefit from a child centred approach to learning and a rich mix of child and adult directed activities.

Emergent skills in literacy and numeracy are developed and extended through a variety of teaching approaches which prepare each girl for the next stage in her education. Specialist teaching in PE, Music and Swimming ensures that all pupils make excellent progress in exceeding the Early Learning Goals.
