The Early Years Foundation Stage is the period of education from Birth to 5 years.
The Early Years Foundation Stage at Summerfield Primary School consists of both Nursery and Reception classes.
In Nursery we have 52 part time places: 26 morning places and 26 afternoon places. In January and April, we offer places to rising 3s. Children in Nursery receive 15 hours free Early Education Entitlement funding.
Our Reception is made up of 2 Reception classes with 30 children in each class.
At Summerfield we provide our children with a wide range of knowledge and experiences through our well-planned curriculum. We also recognise the importance of our local area as an essential part of our curriculum as we celebrate the local traditions, cultures, and celebrations within our diverse community. We embed this celebration of diversity into all areas of the curriculum and everyday teaching and learning.
