Early Years - Tapestry


Welcome to Ferring CE Primary School! We are thrilled to have you here as we embark on an exciting journey in the early years of education. At Ferring CE primary School, we pride ourselves on providing a nurturing and stimulating environment that fosters holistic development.

One of our key highlights is our thoughtfully designed outdoor space, providing a dynamic and engaging setting for your child's exploration and growth. We believe that learning extends beyond the classroom, and our outdoor environment is a key component in shaping well-rounded individuals.

Inclusivity is at the heart of our approach. We are dedicated to working closely with students who have Special Educational Needs (SEN) and offering robust pastoral care. Our commitment to individualised attention ensures that every child feels supported and can thrive in their unique way.

  4. Mathematics: Cultivating a solid foundation in numeracy through hands-on experiences, problem-solving, and mathematical exploration.

  5. Literacy: Nurturing a love for reading and writing, our curriculum guides children on their literacy journey, unlocking the world of imagination and communication.

  6. Understanding the World: Inspiring curiosity about the world around us, this area emphasizes exploration, discovery, and a growing awareness of the environment.
