Heronswood Primary School and Pre-School

Welcome to Pre-School

Our Pre-School class is situated within the school building next to our two Reception classes. It is a bright, vibrant and engaging space which has been specifically designed and created with children in mind. The room has dedicated zones to enable the children to learn about the world around them, in fun and exciting ways. Specific areas for maths, role play, writing, art and crafts, phonics, construction and reading, ensure children are exposed to a wide and balanced curriculum. 





Outside we have a purpose built area for our children to enjoy with climbing frames, sand pits, water trays, a mud kitchen and a pirate ship. An area where they can safely run and play, climb and explore.


Our staff encourage and develop warm relationships which enable children to flourish and develop their personal and social skills; preparing them fully for their transition to primary school.
