At Guiseley Primary School we believe that quality early learning experiences are essential in providing the foundation for future success.
In Nursery, we enrich the environments so that children feel secure and happy, with access to motivating and challenging learning experiences. Children are valued as individuals and we aim to follow their interests and needs to provide personalised learning opportunities, that promote excellent levels of progress and development. There is at least one fully qualified teacher working within the setting along with experienced teaching assistants each day.
We strongly value parental contributions to children’s learning and enjoy the opportunity to work with parents and carers to achieve the best possible outcomes.
“Relationships between children and children, and between children and adults, are strong and respectful which means children’s behaviour is outstanding as is the case in the rest of the school” Ofsted March 2018
We have recently combined our Pre-school and Nursery provision to enable our excellent Early Years Practitioners to share their expertise across the phase. This has given us the opportunity to further promote the children's sense of adventure and curiosity as well as providing more extensive provision areas for the children to access to ensure we are meeting their every need and identifying areas for their development as soon as possible.
From September 2021, we will be implementing the Government's new statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. For more information on how these changes may impact your child's time in Nursery, please request to speak to Miss Dryden-Jones (EYFS & KS1 Phase Leader) via the school office.

Group activities and learning are captured through photographs and captions on our i-pads and shared with parents through our online learning journal programme, 'Tapestry'. We have found this to be a wonderful way of sharing the children's experiences instantly with parents and also gives us a valuable insight into our children's home experiences. Parents and children enjoy uploading photographs or comments of learning experiences at home.
When we succeed in giving every child the best start in their early years, we give them what they need today. We also set them up with every chance of success tomorrow. Development Matters 2020
