About Us

"Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
At Bishop Lonsdale we offer a broad and balanced range of subjects and topics within a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment to enable children to start their journey as enthusiastic, successful, life-long learners.
Our provision is carefully planned and taught to allow children to explore, create and acquire knowledge that is relevant to their lives in all seven key areas of learning. Throughout their independent and collaborative play, our children are given opportunities to extend their learning through critical thinking and challenge. 
 The seven key areas of learning are:
  • Communication and Language
  • Personal, Social and Emotional 
  • Physical Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
Our aim is for children to leave the Early Years with the knowledge and skills required to start the next stage of their learning journey in Year One. 
"The early years provides a very stimulating environment that makes a substantial contribution to the children’s learning. The fact that the children feel safe and enjoy being there is apparent in their confidence, when talking about what they are doing, the strong relationships that they form with each other and the staff, and their very good behaviour." OFSTED 2016
