Welcome to Learners Class

Children who are in Learners' class are Year 1. They are taught by Mrs Brown and Mr Grason, who are supported by Mrs Exelby. We recognise the essential transition that children must make from the play based Reception curriculum into Key Stage One. Therefore, careful planning is undertake to ensure that this process is smooth and highly beneficial to the children and their needs. This also includes access to outdoor provision.
