Mrs Riley

Welcome to our Nursery FS1 class page!


I am the FS1 Teacher and Early Years Leader and my name is Mrs J Riley.

Our Class is called the 'Robins'.


I have two experienced Learning Support Assistants working alongside me in Nursery

Mrs N Oades (NNEB) and Mrs L Boyer


We have both a morning and afternoon nursery here at Hayfield Lane Primary. The children each receive 15 hours free entitlement and we now also offer additional sessions for you to purchase at the fantastic price of £3 per hour (£9 per session).

We offer a rich learning environment with great continuous provision to encourage independence and learning.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum we plan and teach activities and experiences for children to learn across seven main areas of learning:


3 Prime areas of learning

Communication and Language

Physical Development

Personal, Social and Emotional development


4 Specific areas of learning



Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design


Your children will have the opportunity to learn everything they need to know to be 'school ready' and ensure a smooth transition into FS2 Reception.


Play is a child's learning and we have great fun in the indoor and outdoor environment, click on our 'Having fun at work' page to see our pictures!
