St James' Catholic Primary School"We belong to the loving family of St James”

Early Years Foundation Stage

Welcome to Early Years!


Welcome to our EYFS class page! Here you will find all the latest information about the exciting learning which takes place within our Early Years Unit. 


The St James' Early Years Unit is bright, spacious and welcoming, and provides a range of opportunities both indoors and outdoors for your child to learn, grow and flourish. We value quality early years education, giving children the building blocks they need to succeed when they start school. Our Nursery caters for children aged 2 to 4 year olds. All the activities we offer are designed to give children an opportunity to experience their environment, practice and develop skills, increase their knowledge, and to be given chances to make choices, to be praised and encouraged, and to feel comfortable and secure in a warm, loving environment. 


We are staffed by Mrs Draper (Reception) and Mrs Skeldon (Nursery) and we have a talented team of support staff. We welcome children into our Early Years setting from the age of 2 and we currently have spaces for both morning and afternoon sessions (including full days). Please contact Mrs Talbot, the school Business Manager, on 01695 728989 for further information or if you would like to arrange a visit.
