What to expect when you join St Vincent’s VC Academy

Starting school is an exciting time both for children and their families. When your child/ren first enter Foundation Stage (nursery/reception), our first aim is to quickly put them at ease, get them excited about school life and support them in building friendships and relationships.

The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is: fun and engaging, utilising play to support high quality, immersive and challenging learning experiences.

The environment is set up to support children in developing their relationships, communication, independence, shared thinking, creativity and problem solving.

Our staff are dedicated to getting to know each child fully; finding out who they are, what interests them, what they can do well, what they need support with and what will challenge them. This helps us to create fun and meaningful learning experiences.
