Welcome to Early Years!

We would like to welcome both new and existing families to our Early Years Foundation Stage, as your children begin their journey at St George’s Roman Catholic Primary School.

Our Patron Saint in Early Years is St. Nicholas and we will celebrate our Saint’s Day on November 23rd this year.



At St George’s RC School we operate an Early Years unit. Both our Nursery and Reception classes work closely together as we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.

In our unit we have two teachers- Mrs Ellington and Mrs Walker– and three assistant teachers – Miss JacquesMrs Iggulden and Mrs O’ Grady. The Early Years Foundation Stage is a very special time where children learn all the skills necessary for school. We learn to be a kind friend, express ourselves effectively and be independent learners as well as beginning our journey to read and write. A lot of our learning is through play, as this is how young children learn best!


Alongside COOL time (Continuing Our Own Learning) in our indoor and outdoor environments, we have some special events during the week.

– Forest area on Wednesday

Reception enjoy:

We use Tapestry, our online learning journal system, to share your child’s day to day learning and communicate messages.
