Welcome to Foundation Stage! We work with children from three to five years and follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We have a FS1 Base (Nursery) and a FS2 Base (Reception). The teachers in FS1 are Mrs Hotchkiss and Miss Hotchkiss who are supported by Curriculum Specialist Mrs Byrne and Teaching Assistants Mrs Stephens and Mrs Harrison. In FS2 the teachers are Mrs Bell and Mrs Hurst who are supported by Teaching Assistant Miss Shaw.
During children’s time in Foundation Stage they will cover three prime areas of learning through child led and adult led activities. The prime areas are: Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. These prime areas are the most essential to a child’s healthy development and future learning.
They will also cover four specific areas which are: Literacy, Mathematical Development, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. We work closely together as a Foundation Stage team and with the rest of Angram Bank School. We take part in Achievement Day, termly Parents Evening, parent workshops and fundraising events. Children get on the Angram Bank bus in our Foundation Stage and continue on an exciting learning journey!
We take effective and thoughtful action to promote and design a wide range of opportunities to develop pupils spiritual, moral, social, cultural and physical well being. This enables our pupils to thrive in a supportive and positive climate for learning.

As you were probably aware the school had an Ofsted visit on Wednesday 6th October. This was the first short inspection carried out since the school was judged to be good in June 2012. The inspection findings were that Angram Bank Primary School "continues to be good" and we would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all our children, staff, parents and carers who have supported us and helped us achieve this fantastic result for Angram Bank Primary School. I am sure you will agree the inspection findings are a true reflection of all the hard work and commitment that makes Angram Bank such a good school. I have attached a copy of the report below for anyone who didn't receive a copy via their child. Well done everyone!!
