Addington School

Welcome to Early Years


We have six classes in the Early Years department, where the pupils range from 3-8 years old. We access an adapted Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. We incorporate aspects of other curricula into our teaching and learning to ensure all of our pupils have access to everything they need in order to reach their full potential. Many of our children receive speech and language therapy, physiotherapy and occupational therapy, VI and HI specialist support among other strategies to support their development. 

The pupils in the Early Years classes learn through play, with the adults supporting and encouraging interaction and communication, social skills, independence and positive behaviour. Each child has individual targets, and their day is personalised for what they need in order to thrive. 

We also incorporate enriched curriculum activities such as Forest School, Yoga, Rebound and Relaxation sessions as part of our weekly curriculum.

Here at Addington, we understand that starting school can be an anxious time for both child and parent, and we endeavour to support parents and carers in any way we can. There is so much support here on offer, so please do just ask!

Our aim is to make learning fun, and make school a place where children feel safe and happy to be. 
Yvonne Wilson & Kaylea Povey are joint Heads of Early Years. If you have any questions please e-mail
