Please take a look at our pages to see what we have been doing!


At St. Clements’ C of E Primary School, we are very proud of the quality of education, provision and care that we provide for our children in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Over the last few years, we have worked tirelessly to develop and improve our practice and provision to enable our children to grow into happy, confident and independent learners. The positive impact of this can be seen in the number of children who make good progress throughout our EYFS to achieve a “Good level of Development” ensuring that they are fully prepared for the next stage of their education. Key areas which have been developed include outdoor learning, parental links, further enhancement of the high quality learning environment, improving transition procedures and the improvement of literacy outcomes through the rigorous teaching of writing, vocabulary and phonics.

Some comments from our lovely parent/carers

“I am super confident that my child will not only reach his potential whilst in 
St Clements Foundation stage, but will also be cared for and have fun along the way.”
“When my son first started school, I was scared for him. My son is a very shy boy and 
he has speaking problems. He cried that he didn’t want to go to school. I can now say that me little boy is still shy but he loves Nursery. He has come along way and is working so hard on his talking thanks to
Nursery. He tells me about his day and sing songs.  He is now starting to build his confidence up at school and at home.  
Thanks to the teachers. He has grown and I have too”.
“I honestly recommend this school to all my friends. I am so happy with the progress my son has made in his first year at school. The teachers are all so welcoming and friendly. My son has settled well in school. Thank you to the wonderful staff”.
“As a parent, I am very happy with what you are doing in reception. You’re really doing a fantastic job. Well done”.
“Ever since my daughter got a place at St Clement’s Nursery I have been continually impressed. Right from the first getting to know you sessions and now every day in the classroom, the staff have worked admirably hard to get to know the children well. They continually seem to show care and interest in each child and their individual interests, needs and personalities. Most recently I have been particularly impressed by their dedication to creative and engaging topics to help the children in their learning. Florence has been captivated by all the activities based on the teddy theme, such as the picnic, bear hunt and Goldilocks story. I am greatly appreciative of the hard work of the staff in nursery, their dedication to Florence’s learning and well being and their efforts to uphold and support the school’s values.”
Our children enjoy coming to nursery and reception at St.Clements.
“I like seeing all my friends. We play in the outdoor classroom with all the things in there”
“I like playing in the mud kitchen outside”.
“The water area is fun. I like playing outside”
“I like doing dough disco and squeezing my dough”
