At Talbot Primary School, we aim to welcome Parents and Carers into our setting, as we believe that this partnership will provide the best start on your child’s journey through their early years education.
Our setting is calm, cosy and natural with areas of provision that will be familiar to children coming from Nursery but is developed and built upon to ensure progression. In the Early Years, the child is our curriculum. We build upon children’s current knowledge and prior learning, as well as providing opportunities for them to develop their learning through their own interests. Ultimately, what and how they learn is unique to them; every child’s journey will be slightly different. As a result, our curriculum is bespoke to Talbot Primary School and is driven by our own community.
Please see the links below for information on our bespoke curriculum, ideas to help at home and websites to support communication and to spark a lifelong love of learning.
