Beacon Hill Community Primary School
At Beacon Hill Primary School, we recognise that beginning early years education at a younger age has a high positive impact on learning outcomes. Staff at Beacon Hill School already work collaboratively with local early years providers to provide a smooth and nurturing transition for the children joining our Reception year. The school would like the opportunity to have educated these children directly from the start of their early education entitlement.
From research already carried out we believe that our nursery would be well received, but we understand the importance of consulting with the community, to ensure we are providing what is needed and wanted. We propose to offer provision to children who are funded for 15 hours, under the universal free entitlement and those eligible for 30 hours free childcare.
As a result of the above, we propose to change the admission age to include children under the age of four. This proposal is fully supported by the governing body and a consultation will go live this Monday 6th February when a questionnaire will be posted below.
