Welcome to Bishopswood Early Years Foundation Stage (nursery). The teachers are Febs and Esme.
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 three 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 at five, 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).
