Abbey School – Curriculum Policies

At Abbey School we believe in community and a sense of excellence and that it is our responsibility to ensure that every child believes they have the ability to learn and the self-assurance to solve problems and overcome difficulties.

We encourage our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community – in so doing we help to develop their sense of self-worth.

National Curriculum

In the creative curriculum we place an emphasis on active learning by including the children in discussions, investigations and problem-solving activities. As far as possible, learning is based on the children’s first hand experiences.

The curriculum goes beyond the legally required elements of the National Curriculum documentation and we aim to deliver a creative, cultural, sporting and intellectual experience that offers exciting opportunities for learning.

What parents say about our school

Abbey Nursery is more than just 'childcare', as a parent I appreciate the consistency and experience of the teachers, and they way they really get to know the children as individuals, working with you as a parent to ensure the very best for each child, whatever their needs or abilities might be.

Jo Spurle

My child has enjoyed being in nursery from day 1. He never wants to come home!
