    About Godwyn House Nursery

    Please click here to download the nursery parent handbook for 2015-2016.

    We strive to provide a happy, secure environment where the children feel valued as individuals and develop a positive attitude towards learning. Children are encouraged to ask questions and to develop lively and enquiring minds. We have high expectations and aim to foster a sense of pride in their achievements.

    There is a morning and afternoon Nursery class in the Department. There is an excellent staffing ratio with a Nursery Nurse supporting the teacher in both Nursery classes. There is a balance of age, gender and ability within each Nursery class.

    Pupils are taught by individual teaching, group teaching or class teaching, whichever is the most appropraite for the task in hand.

    The early years are critical in terms of successful intellectual, creative, social, emotional, physical and spiritual development. It is our aim to provide a solid foundation on which all future learning is based.

    By the time children leave the Nursery, we would expect they would:

    • Demonstrate friendly behaviour, and feel confident to initiate conversations and form good relationships with other children and familiar adults
    • Move freely and with pleasure and confidence
    • Be aware that print carries meaning and attempt mark making independently
    • Listen to stories with increasing attention and enjoyment and handle books carefully
    • Know information can be found in books
    • Use some number names and mathematical language accurately in play and show an interest in numerals in the environment
    • Show an interest in representing numbers
    • Show care and concern for living things and the environment

    Godwyn House Nursery is situated in the Pre-Prep, which has its own secure building with play areas at the front and rear.


    Curriculum

    We have a carefully planned curriculum based on the Early Years Foundation Stage in Nursery. We aim to extend children whenever possible whilst supporting those who need extra help.

    There is a focus on the Prime Areas initially, these are Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development.

    Also as we are laying the foundations for all the children's future learning, literacy and numeracy assume a high profile.

    Careful planning takes place at every stage and records of children's development and achievement are kept.

    In Godwyn House Nursery, there is a balance of structured activities and free play throughout the curriculum. Developing children's social skills is a major part of the Nursery curriculum. The skills necessary to become a proficient reader are also given a high priority. We use a multi-sensory system called Jolly Phonics to develop the children's phonological understanding.

    Good working habits are established and high standards of work and behaviour are expected.

    Our boarding house is located next to our campus in Derby Hall. Facilities consist of large and comfortable single or twin rooms. In addition, the boarding house has communal rooms for relaxation, study, and snacking.

    Boarders share meals in our dining room, excursions, and activities together, Most of all, they are part of a close knit community where they are known and supported. Our last inspection rated boarding as excellent. Read our boarding inspection report here.
     

    What is a State Boarding School and how much does it cost?

    There are 38 state boarding schools in the country. They offer free education and only charge for boarding. Because of this, the boarding fees we charge are less than 50% of those charged by private fee paying schools. To learn about our fees click here.
