Welcome to Nursery at Byker Primary School, we would like to introduce ourselves as we have the privilege as the Early Years Leads. This means we am here to support your child, yourself, and all of Early Years in any possible way to ensure that your child has the best foundations to their learning. We have both had experience of teaching both Nursery and Reception and know how important, magical, and exciting the foundation years are and strive to ensure your child has the best start possible.
At Byker Primary School we have a creative and caring ethos where our devoted and energetic teachers and staff strive to ensure your child loves to learn through an engaging and inclusive curriculum. We aim for every child to become a confident learner where they develop strong and happy relationships with peers.
We follow an effective early years’ curriculum which is carefully structured; recognising the different starting points and the individual needs using the Development Matters. We provide rich and stimulating learning opportunities through hands on experiences both adult-led and child initiated. Our passionate team observe and respond appropriately to the child interests and we record all of the exciting steps your child takes using our interactive Learning Journey, Tapestry.
We foster a love for reading in our school using our Hooks into Books scheme, allowing children to develop their own home library and learn to question and develop knowledge of books and characters. We develop core Maths and Literacy Skills through teacher directed learning and support our children develop social and communication skills in our small group time sessions. We ensure that our indoor and outdoor environment offer rich and broad learning opportunities and we use Topic based themes to focus children’s learning and inspire keen interests.
At Byker Primary School we strongly believe that children can do anything as long as they have the passion, the drive, the focus and the support from us and you as parents! It is a privilege for us to be working with your child, we look forward to you joining us in September and we both look forward to meeting you as Early Years Lead.
