Everton Primary School

Everyone. Everyday. Everlasting.

Foundation Stage Unit

Welcome to the Foundation Stage Unit



We welcome children from the age of 3 into our Foundation Stage Unit. We are a mixed aged class of nursery and reception children. 

Our Foundation Stage Unit includes two indoor teaching and learning areas and the outdoor area in-between.  The teaching and learning space is split into the six areas of learning and development for the Foundation Stage Curriculum.


These areas are:


  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design


During the day your child will be accessing these different areas.  They will have group activities, small group tasks and will also be choosing their own activities that will involve self initiated learning. 


We regularly use 'Class Dojo' to give learning updates and share photographs with our parents. 



Children can attend from the age of 3 from 8am until 5pm - please see the information below.


Top-Up Sessions

You might be aware that the government funds 15 hours of nursery education for every child (this equates to 5 morning or afternoon sessions each week).  We are able to offer additional sessions at cost to the parent. We’re flexible and can accommodate regular top-up sessions or just one-off sessions. Please contact us if you would like further information.


Before and After School Clubs

Nursery and reception children are very welcome at breakfast club (from 8am) or after school (fun) club.  Pick-up times for fun club can be booked until 4pm, 4:30pm or 5pm.  Booking should be made before noon on the required day.



Children are welcome to stay for lunch and can choose either a hot school lunch (cooked on-site) or to bring a packed lunch.  School lunches are great value, nutritionally balanced and use fresh produce, sourced locally where possible. Menus are available from the school office and on the Nottinghamshire County Council website.
