About EYFS/Year 1


Our EYFS/Year 1 unit at Parsons Down Partnership has 3 classrooms and its own outside play area and wildlife garden. The unit is completely enclosed by its own fence which enables us to use all the areas for outside teaching and playing within a safe environment. The children get used to the school day within their own surroundings and are taken into the main school hall for assemblies, lunch and PE.
