Welcome to the Holyport Foundation Stage Unit


Meet the team;

Miss Sharp - FSU Class Teacher

Mrs Abbott - Nursery Nurse

Mrs Herridge - Teaching Support Assistant

Mr Deveral - Sports Coach





I would like to offer a very warm welcome to the new children and parents joining us in September. We have had a great time meeting you and very much look forward to seeing you all again in September. Here are the welcome presentations:

Look out for an email from Tapestry. Tapestry is our online learning journal. Over the summer holidays I will set up the children's portfolios and parent access. You will receive an email asking you to set up a user account and password. Please follow the link and instructions within the email. If you do not received the email please check with a member of FSU staff that the email address we have for you is correct.  


Keep an eye on our Communication board for messages affecting reception and nursery. We update our website regularly and the school office will email you newsletters, letters and other communications. 


Any queries please find a member of staff!

The end of the early years foundation stage also marks the end of Tapestry for our children moving up into year 1. You are able to keep and treasure all these memories in an electronic file. If you would like a download of you child's journal then please ask Miss Sharp who is happy to prepare the file for you. The children will soon be bringing home all of their portfolios of work and exercise books.
