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, and certainly as a result of consulting with the community, there was a very positive response to the proposal. We are not in a position to offer such provision from September 2023, but very much hope that this may be feasible in the near future.
If we did open a nursery on the site, we would make a proposal to change the admission age to include children under the age of four. This proposal is fully supported by the governing body, and we will keep everyone informed of any future developments.
