Welcome to Bishopswood Early Years Foundation Stage (nursery) which we call Little Stars.  The teachers are Febs and Bobby.





Our Learning Support Assistants are











Our Early Years department is co-located at Valley Road primary school in Henley.  Early Years caters for a wide range of special educational needs, for children aged 2-5 years, offering outstanding provision within a fully inclusive learning environment.  Eight of a total of twenty-six  equivalent full time places are allocated on a sessional basis.  The department is managed by a highly experienced teacher who works part time and is supported by another part time teacher and  a  team of five learning support assistants.  Bishopswood staff work closely with the Valley Road staff sharing well-resourced classrooms, and an outdoor learning space.  Careful assessments are made of each child’s progress and these are shared regularly with parents/carers.  Preparation for moving to the next phase of education begins when a child is four years old.  The department is supported by a speech and language therapist, physiotherapist, occupational therapist and clinical nurse specialist.  (These services fall under the NHS).
