Our Early Years Aims
At Hodthorpe Primary School, our aim is to create a happy and secure environment, where children will develop confidence and an eagerness to learn. We recognise that as parents, you are an important educator in your child’s life and it is our wish to begin to create positive partnerships with families from the outset.
We have introduced Stay & Play Sessions and we welcome all family members, including; Mums, Dads, Partners, Grandparents and Carers etc. You are invited to stay and play with your children as we value your support and recognise the importance of partnership with parents.
Benefits of Stay and Play sessions
Stay & Play sessions are free and you have the chance to see your child interact with other children and learn through play in a relaxed environment. Staff will set up activities following the children’s interests and parents/carers can come along and take part in the activities, learn new skills and ideas for learning at home through play. You will also have the opportunity to find out about school life and pick the brains of the professionals who work in the setting or run the Stay & Play sessions.
We offer 1 Stay and Play session each half term, and places are offered on a first come first serve basis.
