As Early Years Leader at Hartburn Primary School, my vision is for our children to become inquisitive, independent learners who at a very early age, develop resilience and a deep love for learning which continues for the rest of their life.
Planning and learning activities ensure every child makes progress, in all Seven Areas of Learning, regardless of their starting points or barriers to learning.
Our aim is that all Early Years practitioners are enthusiastic, passionate and highly skilled. They must love working with young children, have a secure knowledge of early childhood development, phonics, reading and maths and aspire to be excellent role models. Staff adopt high expectations and take pride in being able to help children learn.
At Hartburn, we are immensely proud of the safe, stimulating Early Years environments, both indoors and outdoors. Both environments offer high quality resources and a range of opportunities, which encourage children to be curious and solve real-life problems whilst practising and applying newly learned skills. Areas are organised so children are encouraged to interact, cooperate and share ideas and equipment with their peers. Links with families and the community ensure children begin to develop local and global responsibility and empathy for others.
We look forward to welcoming you and your child into the Early Years family at Hartburn. We hope their time with us is just the beginning of an amazing journey, Learning for Life.

Nursery and Reception are both part of The Early Years Foundation Stage of Primary School. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is a very important stage in learning at Hartburn Primary School. Children develop quickly in the Early Years and practitioners aim to provide children with best possible start to their education learning journey.
The content of the curriculum for Nursery and Reception can be found within the Curriculum Overview.
All children follow the new statutory Early Years Foundation Stage Framework 2021. This explains what and how your child will be learning. Young children learn through play and by active investigation and exploration. Through our high quality environments both indoors and outdoors your child will be developing skills, acquiring knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through seven Areas of Development. More detail on this can be found by clicking on the link below.
Children are provided with opportunities to learn through self initiated and adult led activities and challenges. They are encouraged to become active and independent developing a love of learning through real life experiences.
All children regardless of their starting points are encouraged to reach their full potential. Positive partnerships between home and school are valued and enhance learning opportunities for children both at school and at home.
