 Nursery Curriculum

The nursery children at Long Close follow the Foundation Stage curriculum, focusing on seven areas: communication and language; physical development; personal, social and emotional development; literacy; mathematics; understanding the world; and expressive arts and design. We have high expectations, continuously assessing their progress and pushing them to meet and exceed the levels we believe they should reach.

Pastoral Care

Our nursery children learn to value each other as individuals, celebrating each other’s successes – academic, creative, cultural and social – at weekly assemblies, and developing a sense of their own importance to the school community. They are also encouraged to celebrate the diversity of Long Close, marking major religious festivals and cultural events such as Harvest, Christmas, Diwali, Eid, Easter, Navarati, Vaisakhi and Chinese New Year. 

 ‘Outstanding’ Nursery Inspection 

Our recent report states: “In this outstanding [Nursery] setting all children make outstanding progress in their learning and development relative to their starting points and are exceedingly well prepared for the next stage of their education … Parents commented that they were very happy with the secure and friendly atmosphere.”
