Foundation Stage is led by Mrs Bex Murdoch. 

Mrs Murdoch and the children are supported by Mrs Victoria Mcluskie and Mrs Kelly Aves, both teaching assistants are highly experienced and Mrs Aves is qualified to teach the class in the absence of a class teacher.

Mrs. Kate Coleman is the dedicated meal time assistant and will be supporting the children in the classrooms as well. 


If you need to see Mrs Murdoch you are welcome to drop in at the school office. Mornings are a busy time so if more than a few minutes are needed, please asks for an appointment. When making an appointment, early morning appointments are best or after school.

Play is learning in the Foundation Stage
There are four overarching principles in the early years. These are:
· Every child is a unique child
· Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships
· Children learn and develop well in enabling environments
Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates
