Clowne Infant & Nursery School

‘We take our children on a journey of discovery, giving them aspirations and engaging them in lifelong learning’



School Readiness is about helping children get ready to start in Reception...


There are 10 keys to unlock School Readiness.


If children can do these 10 things before starting Reception, then they have the best chance for success as they begin school.


If your child is in Nursery they will focus on these keys with their key workers. Working on them at home as well gives your child every opportunity to be ‘school ready’ before they start in Reception. 


Have a look at the 10 keys in the link below.

Is your child ready for school?

What will your child learn with us in Reception?

Our curriculum in Reception is built using the documents 'The Early Years Foundation Stage Profile' and 'Development Matters in the Early Years'. Our planning for the year largely uses developmental points within the 30-50month, 40-60month and Early Learning Goal sections for each area of learning. These can be found within the document below. In order to cater for the individual needs of all our children, we move fluidly through all ages and stages.
