"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it" Proverb 22:6
This class signals the introduction to the national curriculum but also builds on the goals and ethos of the early years foundation stage.

They become more confident in all areas of Academy life and develop as individuals within a wider community.
