Welcome from our Head of Early Years, Jenny Berry
Welcome to Bridgewater School Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). At Bridgewater School our EYFS learning opportunities are carefully planned to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum. We seek to promote the development of skills across all areas of learning, both inside and outside. Our staff team are skilled at assessing children's individual needs and interests to plan challenging and unique experiences to ignite their curiosity and offer stretch and challenge!
We know that you, as parents and carers, are children's primary educators and it's important to us that we work in close partnership to ensure the best outcomes for your child. We will regularly share information with you to develop this partnership through weekly family learning. Your engagement will be a positive opportunity to build home/school links. We look forward to working together.

See below for a copy of the welcome booklet for Nursery. Please do refer to it throughout the year because it contains lots of useful information about what to expect in this class.
Takes place every Monday morning and Thursday afternoon. To find out more about Forest School click here.
Information on our school uniform can be viewed by clicking here. Nursery children are not expected to wear the full uniform but we would like then to dress practically and we know that they will want to identify with Bridgewater as their school. Therefore the nursery uniform consists of navy blue jogging bottoms or shorts, a white polo shirt and the school sweatshirt or cardigan.
Nursery children don't require any PE kit, they simply take off their shoes and socks for PE.
Our Nursery children will have a Family Learning book. This will be returned to school each Wednesday please and will be sent home on a Thursday. We will send home a weekly update on learning themes and may suggest family activities to support learning in school, suggest resources to collect or a question to ponder. These tasks will be fun and engaging - however they are not compulsory! Please also use this book to share those “WOW” moments at home, your own observations and feedback are invaluable to build a holistic view of your child’s development.
Most information is sent to parents & carers through our online parent comms system, Parentmail. To find a copy of letters sent to Nusery please click here.
