Christ Church CE Primary and Nursery Academy

An EXCELLENT Church School in all areas. OUTSTANDING Early Years provision.

Learning to live together, together living to learn. “Learn from Me.” (Matthew 11:29)

For every child to reach their God-given potential in a positive, caring and aspirational environment.

The Foundation Stage Village

We place great importance on the value of learning through both outdoor and indoor play and operate a Foundation Village which provides a seamless Early Years experience for children and their families.


Our Nursery and Reception classes are partially integrated, allowing the Nursery children to experience the Reception environment before they move up. The set up also allows our new Reception children to visit the Nursery at the tricky transition time in September; providing them with a space they are familiar with.


Children across the Foundation Stage phase are able to share learning experiences throughout the day; this includes phonics sessions, PE, outdoor play and free flow areas in the afternoon.


All of our Early Years staff work together within the phase to support children across all ages from 2-5 years. They get together in weekly phase meetings to plan collaboratively and observations of all children are made by all practitioners across the EYFS.
