At Thorpe Lea Nursery and Primary School, we have a qualified and experienced primary teacher working in the Nursery full time. Her focus is on developing the "whole" child; enhancing intellectual potential, improving fine and gross motor skills, encouraging empathy and respect, growing curiosity and investigative skills and encouraging a positive attitude to learn. Alongside this, Thorpe Lea Nursery puts emphasis on developing academic achievement, delivered through well planned daily phonics and mathematical inputs and activities.
Having an experienced and fully qualified teacher within the setting brings insight and understanding to the delivery of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We ensure that the knowledge and skills which will best aid children's transition into school are planned for, nurtured and developed. Our teacher's proficiency in observing and assessing children's development enables us to accurately plan the next steps to progress and supports each child's needs. At Thorpe Lea Nursery, we promote a combination of child-initiated and adult-led activities to support all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
In addition to our class teacher, we are lucky to have four other amazing members of staff who work within the Nursery with Key Worker roles. Our Key Workers play a vital role in supporting, developing and caring for the children on a daily basis. They are involved in planning, record keeping and assessment, which ensures the Nursery Team have a shared and detailed understanding of each child's progress, achievements and goals. Each member of the Nursery staff is DSB checked and at least two members of staff have paediatric first aid.
