A day in the Life of Pre-Prep!

Children at St Edward’s Pre-Prep enjoy a varied and enriching curriculum. As well as a strong focus on English and Maths, the children are encouraged to participate in music, drama and sports as part of their daily routine. While the curriculum is carefully planned to enable each child to reach their full potential the staff in Pre-Prep also strive to ensure that children develop a lifelong love of learning.

Woodland Explorers such as Creative Caterpillar and Healthy Hare in EYFS, and our school values throughout KS1 are embedded into daily routines and woven through lessons so that the whole child is developed and nurtured.

A Typical Day at School

The school is open from 7.45am for Early Morning Club, with a flexible drop off time until 8.40am, when the children are registered. Parents are able to drop off freely between these times.

The children then have a busy morning which often starts with reading activities. On most days this is followed by English or Maths lessons with a half an hour break for playtime and a healthy snack. On Fridays Pre Prep enjoy going to assembly with the whole school where they may win Pre Prep “Star of the Week” or be part of the House Group with the most House points.

Lunch is at 12.30pm, prepared by our in-house catering team. Linda serves the children’s freshly prepared hot lunch in the hall. In the afternoon, the children may take part a variety of lessons that include science, geography, history, music, PE, art and French. Our EYFS classes often enjoy time learning in our outdoor classroom while they explore, experiment and learn through play.

The school day finishes at 3.55pm when the children can be collected from outside their classrooms or stay for after school care or activities. After school clubs such as Street Feet, Multi Sports and Construction take place from 4.15pm. After school care is available until 5.50pm.

Children at St Edward’s are nurtured to explore, learn and start an incredible journey in their educational world.
