Welcome to Northgate Primary School Foundation Stage

The Foundation Stage Unit forms the basis of your child’s school life. It is here where foundations are laid in a secure, consistent and caring environment taking account of their age and their previous experience.  Our aim is to ensure that your child settles happily into the Foundation Stage and they feel secure within the learning environment. 

As your child starts on their school journey we strive to foster a questioning approach and a love of learning. Your child will experience stimulating and exciting learning opportunities and be encouraged to grow in independence and confidence.  They will also begin to learn the skills needed to be successful lifelong learners.

Children learn best when school and home work together in the best interests of the child.  It is time, support and commitment that your child and the school need to ensure your child gets the best from their time at Northgate.
