New Reception Cohort 2020

Due to Covid 19 our usual face to face new parents' meeting will be virtual.  Please click on the following link to watch the presentation.

At Worlebury we strongly believe that Early Years education is the foundation upon which young children build the rest of their schooling. It is a holistic education that encompasses all learning and development. This is the purpose, nature and management of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at Worlebury Primary School.  EYFS is available to children who enter school from September of the academic year in which they will turn five years old. These children are in the final year of the EYFS. In the National Curriculum this is referred to as the Reception Year, or YR. To read the full policy please look at Policies under Key Information

The Reception children at Worlebury have a fenced off area from the main playground which forms part of their 'outdoor learning environment'. They have access to this area throughout the day. For more information on the Reception Curriculum, please visit our Curriculum page under Key Information.




Please share reading books 5 times a week and record your progress in your child's reading log.  We audit all reading logs weekly to support you and your child's development.

Summer 2021



What an exciting start to the Summer Term!!  You may have noticed some changes in our outside learning are.  We now have a stage and performance area being developed, a new construction area, a water zone, new interactive number displays and sprayed templates on our playground and a workshop for children to play in and use for construction.  We have also revamped our sports zone and home corner.  A huge thanks must go to the EYFS team who have given up a good deal of time and resources (including wider family members) who have made this vision possible.  We are continuing to develop this area even further over the coming months - so keep an eye out on our progress.  We are sure your children will be coming home with lots of stories about their learning adventures!!

September 2020

 Hello and a very warm welcome to Worlebury School and the Early Years Foundation Stage!  Your child's exciting learning journey within the primary setting begins here!

We are really excited at getting to know you and your children over the next few weeks.

You should now have access to Class DoJo and, should you need to contact me, you can do so via that platform.  I will shortly be sending out a video to guide you through our online Bug Club reading scheme including log on and password codes.  The video will show you how to access and use the website and give examples of how you can support your child with reading at home.

I will continue to keep you posted and up-to-date with information through Class DoJo as appropriate and you can view out Class Journey here...



Although the advent of Covid means that we may not be able to communicate so easily in person, be rest assured that we are here for you and are looking forward to working with you to ensure that your child continues to receive the high quality teaching and learning that they deserve!

Many thanks,

Mr Gill.
