At Leigh on Mendip School, we welcome children from 2 years to 11 years old.
Our preschool forms a key part of our Foundation Stage Unit, organised to provide a seamless environment for children from 2 to 5 years old.
Our approach recognises the very best practice in Early Years education, ensuring a safe, happy and secure environment for children to develop and grow.
Our curriculum is planned so children can learn and develop at their own pace through challenging play activities.
We work within the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. You can read more about the framework approach here.
We offer a range of sessions to suit you and your child during term time.
8.30am – 12pm
8.30 – 1:00pm (staying for lunch)
8:30am – 3.00pm
Children attending a session between 12.00pm and 1.00pm can choose to bring a packed lunch, or have one of our delicious school meals.
From the term after their 3rd birthday, all children are entitled to 15 hours a week free, funded education. Some families will also be entitled to 30 hours a week free, funded education depending on eligibility.
For eligible families, 2 Year Old Funding is available for children from the term after their 2nd birthday for up to 15 hours per week.
