Renhold Primary School has Pre-school provision onsite, catering for children aged 3-4 years+, preparing them for their transition into full time education in Reception Class.
Our Pre-school is a popular choice for families of the village and further afield, giving children the opportunity to develop their skills of mark making, pre-reading, social and emotional development as well as providing them with a safe and nurturing environment to explore all that the setting has to offer.
Children are given access to high quality activities, resources and learning opportunities which cater across the entire Early Years Curriculum, following statutory guidance set by the government and meeting all requirements for assessment.
Pre-school children are able to access the school hall weekly to take part in activities such as Movement and Music and Singing and Sign, as well as attending larger assemblies and events where appropriate. Children from Pre-school also team up with Reception Class each year to put on a wonderful Christmas production for parents, friends and family.
Expressing an interest in your child attending our Pre-school is easy; either contact our Pre-School Administrator Vicky Thompson or alternatively drop in and see us, where you will be able to arrange a tour/ visit to see the setting in person. It is important to note that attendance to our Pre-school does not guarantee a place at Renhold Primary in Reception Class, however, most parents do choose to apply to keep their child in our setting as it helps to provide continuity within environment, familiarisation with staff as well as the opportunity to maintain those important early childhood friendships.
To arrange a visit or for further details, please contact Vicky Thompson on 01234 771724 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
5 to Thrive
Five to Thrive is an attachment-based approach to support positive parenting. It's aim is to support parents to be able to 'tune in' to their children. ... The Five to Thrive approach has five "building blocks" that count equally towards parenting a healthy brain: Respond, Cuddle, Relax, Play and Talk and we have adopted this both in Year R and in Pre-school.
Each bag is filled with age appropriate activities and resources to explore each building block with your child at home. Parents can sign these bags out to take home for a week at a time.
