Welcome to Yoxford & Peasenhall Nursery-

Our Early Years Centre of Excellence

Yoxford and Peasenhall Primary School opened a nursery in summer 2018 and it has become the Consortium Multi Academy Trust's Early Years Centre of Excellence in the delivery of exceptional early years provision, best practice and training. 

The new unit has a small but growing cohort of mixed nursery and Reception aged children, able to learn and develop in a purpose built, brand new facility designed entirely for early years foundation stage learning.

The new building is open and spacious so the children can have access to all areas of learning at all times.  The nursery has a secure outdoor area which the children are able to use throughout the day and are free to choose from indoor and outdoor activities.  This allows the children the opportunity to explore new and exciting experiences.

If you would like to visit us we would love to show you around!  Please contact the school office on 01728 668291 or at officeyoxford@yoxvalley.org to make an appointment.  We look forward to meeting you and your child.

The Early Years Foundation Stage

The EYFS is the period of education for all children from birth until the end of Reception year at school.  It is called the Foundation Stage because it provides children with the secure foundations they need for their future learning.  It builds on all the learning that children will have already gained from their families.

There are 7 areas of learning covered by the EYFS curriculum.  These are divided into three prime areas and four specific areas.  

The prime areas are:

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

The specific areas are:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design Communication and Language

Scenarios;

A child attends 3 mornings (9 hours funded) and 1 full day with school meal (6 hours funded) total; 15 hours funded £2.30 to pay.

A child attends 5 mornings (15 hours funded) and 5 afternoons and is eligible for 30 hours funding, the child also has a cooked lunch every day so the cost would be just for the lunches 5 x £2.30 = £11.50 to pay.

A child attends 3 whole days using 15 hours funding for 3 mornings and 2 afternoons and would need to pay for the 6th session at £12.50 and either £3.00 if packed lunch or £5.00 if cooked.  On the other days if they brought a packed lunch then no charge for lunch but cooked lunch would be £2.30 per day as they were using two funded sessions to make a whole.

A child attend 5 full days with school meals  Total; 15 hours funded mornings, 5 paid afternoon sessions £62.50, 5x lunches £11.50 = £74.00 to pay.
