All about us

Welcome to foundation stage


There are 2 classes in foundation stage and the teachers are;


  • Mrs Barber (FS Teacher)

  • Mrs Burgess/Mrs Gough (FS Teachers)


Mrs Melbourne is the foundation stage leader. 


Please come and see us if you have any questions or would like to speak to us about your child. We do ask that if you would like to speak to us for a longer period of time, that it is best to make an appointment with the school office (0116 269 5510) or find us after school. The start of the day can be a tricky time to discuss issues or answer questions in depth as the classrooms are being set up for the new school day.



Each class does PE twice a week and will need to come to school wearing their PE kit on those days. Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday afternoon. Children with earrings need to be able to take them out on their own or should remove them in the morning before school and not wear them on their PE day. Teachers and support staff are unable to be able to take the children's earrings out.


If you are thinking of letting your child have earrings, please can you arrange for this to be done in the summer holiday. As earrings need to be kept in for a length of time after they have first been pierced, any children who have their ears pierced during the other holidays find it a challenge to join in with P.E.
