In Lower Prep we build upon the solid foundations which have been laid during the Pre Prep experience. We ensure a smooth transition from Pre-Prep into Reception, upholding the ethos of the Early Years Foundation Stage and we continue to build independence and resilience from the children. As they move through Lower Prep, expectations steadily increase enabling a gradual introduction to Upper Prep, the end of the primary curriculum and 11+ preparation.
In addition to developing and deepening understanding and experiences in the core subjects of reading, writing and mathematics, our curriculum is enriched with a wide range of activities and experiences. During Lower Prep, children are introduced to more subject specialists including computing, drama and art in addition to the French, sport, yoga and music they experience during their Pre Prep education.
What is Reception like at Weston Green?
Reception at Weston Green School is a very special place for any child to start their formal education journey. The Reception experience encourages a passion for learning from an early age and of paramount importance is ensuring the children love coming to school, develop social experiences and have an abundance of curiosity to find things out. That is exactly what we provide for our children at Weston Green.
Pre Prep at Weston Green School provides an excellent framework that recognises the importance of play and how it underpins both development and learning for young and inquisitive minds. Through spontaneous and adult-led play, we observe how children’s intellectual, creative, physical, social and emotional development impacts on their learning and we plan further challenges and opportunities for them to extend their knowledge and understanding.
Our Extended Care allows pupils to be safely looked after in school, from 7.45am until 6.00pm each day.
