At Balliol we believe in an aspirational curriculum, which offers all children memorable experiences within an exciting, challenging and creative environment alongside effective teaching of key skills for life and learning.
We are committed to inclusion, meeting individual needs, and the provision of the highest quality for all pupils and the efficient use of resources.
Our babies are cared for in a cosy, warm and soothing environment, providing activities which stimulate their senses using textured materials and a wide variety of toys, water, sand play and music.
Our older 0-3 toddlers have access to two spacious rooms providing exploratory activities such as playdough, cooking, threading, puzzles, mark making, small world, sharing stories, singing, homecorner, art & craft, water, sand and painting.
Within our pre school our environment encourages the children to explore sand and water play, role-play, cooking, art & craft, woodwork, mark making, mathematical concepts, construction, threading, board games, musical instruments, ICT, books, story sacks and singing.
Our after school children are collected from three local schools by a member of staff in our people carrier and taken back to the club. There they have the opportunity to complete homework in a quiet designated area, 'chill' at the snack bar, relax listening to music or reading books or play a game until home time at 6pm. During the school holidays a program of activities is devised that include both planned and spontaneous activities. Regular features indoors include: playing games, art & craft, cookery, music, role play, design technology and games consoles. Outdoor activities include football, rounders, spare parts play and team building games.
