At Nursery we offer a broad range of daily activities to develop children's pre-writing skills. There is great importance placed on a child's natural development of their gross motor movements and upper body strength starting from the shoulder down to the finger tips before the children are ready to mark make and later when they acquire their formal writing skills.

Life Academies Trust were presented the Employee Recognition Scheme Silver Award on Thursday evening at a formal awards ceremony in Cambridge. The gentleman furthest right in the photo is our very own John Dilley who received the reward for us. Our facilities manager Chris Mooney also attended the evening as he is ex armed forces.
LIFE Academies trust signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant when we formed and at the beginning of this year we were invited to apply for Silver membership and we are happy to say we have won! Tobias Ellwood MP said: "I am delighted to congratulate the recipients of this year's Employer Recognition Scheme Silver awards. A Silver award recognises the fantastic efforts of employers throughout the UK who have both elevated their commitments under the Armed Forces Covenant and provided actual benefit to the Armed Forces Community. The winners should all be proud of the life-changing impact and fresh opportunities they are providing to our Reservists, veterans, wounded injured and sick and their families. We've seen a record number of winners this year, which shows that the Armed Forces family talent pool is also providing tangible business benefit."
