Head of Primary's Welcome

Dear Parents,

This large converted chalet in Paseo de la Habana has the longest history within the Hastings family of buildings. It is a dedicated Early Years centre for three classes each of Nursery and Reception pupils.

The teachers are UK qualified and experienced practitioners who offer a curriculum based upon the English national curriculum: the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Each class teacher of Nursery children are supported by two full-time, bilingual, teaching assistants; each reception class teacher is supported by one full-time, bilingual, teaching assistant.

The section is led by our Early Years Senior Coordinator who shares a support teaching load covering the six classes based in this building with an additional full-time Early Years Assistant Coordinator. These coordinators report directly to the Head of Primary who is based in the Bendicion de Campos building.

The children are immersed in English from their first day and they spend a great deal of each day learning through play. Outdoor play is very important and so each class enjoys ample time and opportunity to be in the spacious front patio with all the larger toys and learning structures and implements.

Kind regards,
Helen Ormerod
   Head of Primary

At Hastings School, we believe that the children in our care are entitled to provision which supports and extends knowledge, understanding, skills and confidence. We encourage positive attitudes and disposition to learn and aim to give protection from early failure. Above all, we believe that high quality care and education by teachers will lead to effective learning and development for young children.

Every child deserves the best possible start and the support that enables them to fulfill their potential.
