Welcome to Early Years at St Swithun Wells


Hedgehogs Class

Mrs Cole, Mrs Lord, Mrs Gigg and Mrs Brady

Throughout your child's first year at St Swithun Wells we want them to be happy, feel safe and secure and develop good relationships with adults and children.

We will encourage them to become independent learners who are challenging themselves. We aim for them to develop the skills and understanding that are a foundation for lifelong learning.

We will be:

  • Finding out and exploring
  • Learning to 'have a go' and keeping trying
  • Choosing ways to do things and making links in our learning
  • Creating and thinking critically
  • Challenging ourselves to 'stretch' our learning

Make sure you log on to tapestry for all the latest news and ideas of things that you can do to help learning at home.

See the 'Video Resource Centre' on the 'Our Children tab' on this website for our learning videos.
