Early Years at Helmsley Community Primary School

The children will be organised so that they have the best possible opportunity to develop their learning, where they will work in age appropriate groups with members of the EYFS team following the EYFS curriculum, developing phonics, reading, writing and maths skills. They will continue to experience a range of teacher led and child-initiated activities throughout the day and will continue to use the wonderful outdoor learning space that has been developed so effectively over the last year.

Our Early Years Unit will run all day from 8.45am until 3.00pm (Nursery) 3.20pm (Reception) we will be able to offer greater flexibility to parents of Nursery children as the 15 hours of childcare vouchers will be able to be spread over the week and not just mornings. This also mean that Nursery children will be able to increase their hours should parents wish. We will offer the opportunity for parents to pay for additional hours at a very competitive rate.
