Here are some photos of our most recent Stay & Play session where parents and carers are invited in to spend time in their children's learning environment.

Have you seen our newly updated outdoor play area? Thank you to the PTFA who contributed and helped with this.

Early Essence

Early Essence is a system we use to share children's work with parents/carers in Pre-School and Reception.  We take photos of children working and link them to statements from the Early Years Curriculum Development Matters.  We will also use Early Essence to inform parents/carers of the next steps in their child's learning.


Parents/Carers will be able to upload pictures of their child at home, at the park, in the woods or at the beach, at family celebrations, using technology, singing, dancing or playing imaginatively, as well as their independent work such as drawings, writing and maths.

The link to the website is: 


Below you will find a Parent Information PowerPoint which gives you some more information and details.  Parents/Carers will have been sent a text containing their individual log in and password.


If you need any help or assistance logging in or have any questions about Early Essence please ask a member of Pre-School staff or contact the school office.
