All Saints CofE Aided Infant School

Love to Learn and Learn to Love

Forest School engages and inspires our pupils to learn and explore in a woodland setting, whilst teaching self-esteem, team work and how to truly value the stunning natural world"What an amazing Sports Day! Watching the children support and cheer each other on was just lovely and demonstrates, yet again, what a special school All Saints has become"All Saints aims to provide a happy, family atmosphere in a Christian Community which delights in learning in a safe, stimulating environment."I consider my child very lucky to be attending a school that is teaching her, not only the ever-changing curriculum, but also (and far more importantly) that it is fun to LEARN"“There is a good range of high quality additional activities that enrich the curriculum and promote pupil’s development and enjoyment” Ofsted

Welcome to Woodpecker Class


Reception (YR)

A child’s impression of school has a lasting effect on the way he or she progresses on their journey through education. In Reception, we strive to create an ethos where each child feels happy, safe and secure. In addition, our environment is created for pupils to develop, at an early age, self-confidence, independence and enthusiasm for learning. Children are encouraged to have a positive approach to learning and to believe that learning is fun and enjoyable. We promote a ‘can do’ approach to learning by always encouraging them to ‘have a go’ and do their best.  

 ‘Love to Learn and Learn to Love’


As highlighted in the schools ‘missions statement’ each child is given the opportunity to learn in their own way and reach their full potential. Learning through play is at the heart of the Early Years Curriculum and this is evident in our school ethos. 

In Reception we offer a smooth transition from nursery; with nursery visits before the children start in the summer term to home visits in September. We believe that this helps your child with the transition from nursery to school. We continue to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum throughout the Reception year.
