Early Years Foundation Stage

At Mount Pleasant Primary School we have Early Years Provision:

Early Years:  When children turn two they are able to start their education in N1 in the Nursery class, with a qualified nursery practitioner. Unfortunately, this is not currently full time provision due to staffing. Two year olds are offered the chance to attend a number of sessions each week. The sessions we are able to offer will be discussed on application for a place. These sessions are subject to change and are reliant on having the appropriate staffing structure in place.

Foundation Stage 1 is for FS1/ N2 children (aged 3 at 31st of August but turning 4 during the year).

Children in FS1/ N2 are able to stay for lunch in school. Children in FS1 can attend the following sessions:

Mornings: Monday- Friday 8:45-11:45 or Monday – Friday 8:45-1300

Afternoons: Monday, Tuesday , Wednesday and Thursday afternoons 1300-1500

Foundation Stage 2 is for children aged 4 at 31st August and is often termed ‘Reception Year’.

Foundation Stage 2 children who have reached compulsory school age attend 08:45 to 15:10

All N1 and N2 children are admitted to EYFS on a fee paying basis and children in the term after their third birthday are entitled to 15 hours free child care which is provided each morning between 0845 and 11.45
