Pre-School

We are part of a small village school situated in the centre of the Houghton Conquest village community. We are a setting that prides ourselves on putting individuals first, supporting each child to flourish.

Our Ofsted inspection as part of the school’s inspection in November 2015 rated us as good; “The proportion of children achieving at least expected outcomes in communication and language, and personal, social and emotional development, is exceptionally high at 100%.”

We cater for children aged from 2 years to school age and are registered to accept children eligible for 2 year funding, as well as 3 to 4 year old funding. We can also accept a variety of childcare vouchers. 30 hour funding spaces for 3 and 4 year olds are also available subject to availability.

We run morning and afternoon sessions on weekdays during term time. Morning sessions are 8.50am to 11.50am, and afternoon sessions are from 12.30pm to 3.30pm. We also run a lunch club from 12-12.30pm which allows your child to attend all day, your child can have the choice of a packed lunch or hot school dinner.

Our settling in procedure is flexible for each individual child and support is provided for them and their parents/carers when entering our Pre-School. Before starting Pre-School, the child and parents/carer are encouraged to spend time becoming familiar with us.  Parents/carers are welcome to stay until their child feels happy, settled and confident. All children are different; support for the child and parents will be given in all situations.

Some of the parental feedback recently received;

 “We cannot thank everyone at the Pre-School enough for not only what you’ve done for C but also us as a family. C looks forward to going to Pre-School and doesn’t stop talking about his time there when he gets home” Parent of C, July 2018

 “Thank you – we’ve been really impressed with the effort the Pre-School has made and J has loved it!” Parent of J, July 2018

With an Early Years team that support children into and throughout the Reception year we are in a fantastic position to ensure all children are prepared for school life, while maintaining their individuality. Read more about how we plan and teach in our Early Years through the curriculum section of our School website.
