We have the capacity for a 60 place Nursery which usually operates as a morning group of up to 30 children and an afternoon group of up to 30. Children can join our Nursery Class as soon after their third birthday as possible. In the academic year 2017 – 2018, we are only opening a morning class from September 2107 to January 2018 due to the decline in the birth rate in the local area.
Children join a reception class in the September following their 4th birthday and then transfer to a Year 1 class the following September. They move to a Year 2 class for their final year in school. Children transfer to a junior school in the September following their seventh birthday.
We have an excellent pre-school programme for children starting at our school. We believe that all children benefit from being happy and confident when starting school and we encourage parents to bring their children to visit the school wherever possible. They may be invited to join us for annual functions, e.g. Sports Day, Summer Fairs, etc. We hold an introductory talk for parents with the Headteacher, as well as sessions where the children spend time in their new classrooms meeting the teacher and classroom assistant, help both parents and children settle in quickly. The children are also encouraged to borrow books from our pre-school library. Other local pre-schools often visit the school with their children in the year prior to them starting at Delce Infant School. Through such early contacts, the children settle very well into their first class.
Our school is proud of its caring approach from adults and children. We all aim to create an atmosphere of happiness, security and confidence so that all children are ready to learn and grow in self-confidence. Much time is given to the acquisition of key concepts and skills across all areas of the curriculum, especially English, Mathematics and Science. We aspire to always provide the highest quality of teaching and learning.
We believe that our school is special. It is our aim is to ensure that all our children find school life an enjoyable, stimulating and successful experience. We value each child as an individual and recognise that each one will only feel fulfilled by reaching his or her full potential.
