To ensure that all children leave EYFS as resilient, confident, independent learners who have made great progress from their individual starting points and are ready for KS1.


At Lordswood, we aim to provide motivating, hands on memorable learning experiences that encourage children to display ambition and develop a lifelong love of learning. As part of the Griffin Schools Trust, our children are part of a school and wider community who engage in Proud Traditions, Wide Horizons and Achieve Highly in all areas of school life.

Our Nursery offers both 15 and 30 hour provision. This is free for parents who are eligible – check www.gov.uk to find out if you may be eligible.

If you only need your child to attend for 15 hours, this will be in morning or afternoon sessions.

Nursery and Reception work closely together to maximise learning opportunities for all the children.



We recognise that all children are unique and celebrate and embrace differences. Therefore, our curriculum is child-centred following the interests of the children. We are passionate about children leading and engrossing themselves in their own learning. Through our whole school approach to ‘Learning in the Deep’, based on the characteristics of effective teaching and learning experiences, we ensure that our children understand and can discuss the value of the process of learning as well as the outcome.

This is embedded in the children from when they first start in our Nursery. We work in partnership with families and other settings to provide the best possible start at Lordswood and ensure that every child reaches their full potential from their various starting points.

For further information, please phone our office and ask to speak with the Early Years leads.


Phonics Scheme

Our Phonics scheme at Lordswood Primary School is Read write Inc. Read Write Inc is an interactive phonics programme that aims to get children reading and writing fast. It is designed for children aged 4 – 7 but can also be used with 8 – 9 year olds to help them catch up . The programme is rooted in synthetic phonics. Teaching synthetic phonics, in a systematic way, aims to drive up standards in reading and writing. Comprehension skills develop as the children move from learning to read, to reading to understand. The programme builds confidence in grammar, punctuation and spelling ensuring every child becomes a successful reader.

Children are taught phonics every day in small, differentiated groups and are assessed regularly. The sessions are fast paced, interactive and fun!
