My children are very happy to go to school in a warm and nurturing learning environment. It’s amazing how much children learn and develop in early years! Parent Questionnaire comment

Welcome to Class 1. Come and visit us in our large, exciting classroom and stimulating outside play area. Meet our dedicated, caring staff team and the wonderful nursery and reception children, who will show you all the amazing learning we do...

At Eckington CE First School, we are committed to providing a high quality early years’ education, which gives children a secure and confident start to their school life and nurtures a lifelong love of learning. We are fully committed to the purpose and aims of the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. As a Christian school we teach children the important values to enable them to develop as kind and responsible individuals. Emphasis is placed on happy, active, play based learning in which the children engage in creative activities, songs, stories, mathematical and scientific journeys, with a real focus on outdoor learning. The learning environment is set up to encourage children to develop their own learning through exciting challenges across all areas of the curriculum.

By the time they are ready to move on from reception, they will be confident and independent with a real love for learning because we encourage children to think for themselves, make wise decisions, embrace opportunities and take pride in their achievements.
