Foundation Stars

Welcome to our Foundation Superstars at Pilsley Primary School.

We provide for both Nursery and Reception children.

We are a vibrant and joyful Foundation Unit where everyone is welcome. Our aim is that all the children are happy and well motivated, enjoy learning and growing together.

Our learning environment and experienced staff support enhance the children’s learning and challenged them to achieve high standards through a rich and varied curriculum. The children have a wealth of opportunities and are encouraged to investigate, explore and learn.

We aim to create a happy, caring school community where good behaviour and manners are expected and celebrated.

Early Years Foundation Stage provides a wide and structured curriculum that is delivered through planned and supported play activities. This ensures that all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential and experience the best possible start to their education.

Learning Journey

In the Foundation Unit we observe our children and collect photographs, paintings and examples of work. All of this information goes into each child’s Learning Journey booklet which records and celebrates each child’s progress and achievements.

We work together with parents and share information to determine the learning goals of each child.When the children leave the Foundation Unit, the Learning Journey booklet is sent home as a record of their achievements.
