A Good First School in the beautiful village of Lympsham.
Joined the Trust November 1st 2016.
Lympsham Pre-School has been rated as Good by Ofsted and is proud to be part of the Wessex Learning Trust family of schools. Our aim is to make our smallest children feel nurtured, valued and stimulated in a warm and friendly environment which has learning through play at its heart.
Our learning environment includes well-resourced indoor and outdoor spaces and regular trips out and about in the local community, enjoying walks to Manor Gardens, the village park and the cricket green. We also enjoy strong community links with the Post Office and the Pavilion which the children often visit. At Christmas time we share songs with our community and invite them to make crafts with us. Our children attend weekly PE sessions with a professional sports coach who provides exciting games and multi skills sessions as well as teaching our children about co-operation and teamwork.
We value our relationships with parents and have regular 'stay and play' coffee mornings where parents can chat and get to know each other. We are also lucky enough to have parents that come in and cook with the children, as well as parents that come in to help with our topic work. For example, we have recently had visits from a vet, a dentist and a farmer. These links are very important to us and place our pre-school at the heart of the community.
The Pre-school works very closely with Lympsham School and is led by an experienced Early Years lead who also works in the Reception class at the school. In the term before the children start First School. Our Reception Class teacher makes regular visits to the Pre-school and our children they make transition visits to the Reception class so they are familiar with the school and ready to transition to the next stage of their life.
