The Nursery at Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane is an Early Years provision with warm and welcoming staff. Our staff are a dedicated team of individuals who work together to promote a wide and varied Early Years Provision.
Our highly qualified and experienced staff offer the children 'learning through play' based experiences, under the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. This contributes to the development of the ‘whole child’ as our aim is to enable all our children to have rich learning experiences and foster a love for learning.
In September 2020 due to COVID-19 we have 37 full time places available in our nursery.
Normally we have 2 sessions of 24 children: our morning session is from 9:00am - 12:00pm & afternoon session 12:30pm - 3:30pm - when this will be available again we will promote on here. We also have an Early Years Breakfast Club from 7:30am-8:35am as part of the extended day.
Our approach to learning embodies a positive attitude to life and learning as the children prepare to start their journey through school life. Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn and visit us.
We are committed to ensuring equality of opportunities for all and we will endeavour to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which people feel free to participate fully in Nursery life, regardless of their race or gender.
Our Early Years Curriculum covers the seven areas of learning; Prime Areas- PSED (Personal, Social and Emotional Development), PD (Physical Development) and CL (Communication and Language). As well as the Specific Areas- Literacy (Reading and Writing), Mathematics (Number & Shape, Space & Measures), UW (Understanding of the World) and EAD (Expressive Arts and Design)
