Thank you to all the parents who came to the

"Help Your Child to Succeed Meeting"

 We have had lots of positive feedback about the meeting. All families that could not attend have been given a copy of the PowerPoint that supported the meeting. A copy can be found below.

Initially, children enter their Reception Year on a part time basis. This allows practitioners time to build relationships and establish routines.

We look forward to working with you and your child(ren) and to building upon their earlier experiences, knowledge and skills.

"Children are born ready, able and eager to learn"

and we would like to nurture these natural instincts.



For your information................ 

EY's parents there is a dedicated Facebook site: Reception Parents- Gomersal Primary School- 2016-2017.

What are SCRAPSHEDS and why do we use them?

Scrapsheds are containers which are filled with recycled materials and equipment suitable for outdoor creative play. Plastics, large reels, huge tubes, pipes, large boxes, old tyres, material, tarpaulin, den building and much more all suitable for outdoor play


The ultimate aim of the The Scrapshed is to provide our children with a creative alternative to directed games. Children lead

the play and need little or no intervention from adults. The Scrapshed actively encourages children to take risks in order to explore limits, venture into new experiences and develop their capacities, from a young age and from the earliest play experiences. It is also intended that children can take their indoor learning experiences into imaginative play outdoors.
