Learning

All boys within our Nursery and Reception classes are taught in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) for educating children aged from birth to five years. In our learning Nursery, unlike most other day Nurseries, activities are lead and boys are taught by a qualified Early Years teacher.

Our dedicated teaching staff will ensure that learning will start at a place most appropriate to the needs of your son, irrespective of age, and follow guidance set out in the seven areas of learning and development as described in the EYFS framework. Fun, play-based activities, combined with individual support ensure that each boy is given a flying start and a passion for learning. The emphasis at this stage of your son’s education is on learning through a balance of structured play and child initiated/teacher directed learning activities.

All work done with the boys in these first two years at Newcastle School for Boys is put in place to give them the best grounding to continue and thrive in Key Stage 1 and beyond.
