Priory Primary School is a large 3 form entry, vibrant and energetic school in central Dudley with over 700 amazing pupils! Priory first opened in 1930 and nearly 100 years later still serves the local community and its children.
The Priory team are dedicated and strive to deliver a creative and stimulating curriculum that engages and excites our pupils to reach their full potential. We are a values driven school which allows our pupils to feel safe and secure in a warm and welcoming learning environment. As a result, our children are confident and willing to tackle challenges of any kind.
We understand how difficult it can be to leave your child for the first time but our warm, welcoming and nurturing nursery environment is the perfect place to start your child's educational journey. All our Early Years practitioners are highly skilled and will adopt a range of strategies to ensure your child settles quickly and seamlessly into their new environment. Each child is allocated their own key-worker who is dedicated to your child's every need.
We have a dedicated building with a large outside area including a pirate ship and a castle which we are sure your child will love! We have the capacity for 52 children at one time. The children have access to both the indoors and outdoors throughout their nursery session. Our curriculum operates under the Early Years Statutory Framework (2014) and is based on 7 main areas including:-
- Communication and Language
- Personal, Social and Emotional development
- Physical development
- Understanding the world
- Expressive Arts and Design
Many of these curriculum areas are covered within a play-based curriculum but your child will also have dedicated language and mathematics sessions. Alongside the curriculum, we hope to foster lifelong skills and characteristics with the children, such as exploration, concentration and critical thinking skills, these are known as the 'Characteristics of Effective Learning.'
Time for Two’s
At Time for Two’s we are dedicated to providing the best possible care whilst stimulating exploration and learning, giving every child the possibility to achieve their full potential. We embrace the individuality, efforts and achievements of all the children and recognise that learning and development take place during all activities.
Research has shown that good quality early education can:
- help children's development and their communication skills
- help them learn to play with other children and make friends
- help them to get ready for school
- experience new activities including messy play
We can accommodate up to 12 children at one time and have 3 dedicated members of staff, one of whom will be allocated as your child's key worker.
