Our nursery is a stimulating, fun and secure learning environment in which the children thrive. They learn skills by way of new experience. They develop social relationships with others and take the first steps of their education supported by dedicated staff members.
In the Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) we follow the 2012 Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum. In Nursery, our focus is largely on the development of the prime areas and characteristics of effective learning.
We are lucky to have a large space both indoors and outdoors. This allows us to provide the children with a vast number of opportunities to support their learning. We plan all activities in both areas carefully to ensure that the children are developing many skills whilst they are playing. The outdoor space gives the children the opportunity to develop gross motor skills and physical ability with our climbing frames, bikes and scooters.
We have a daily routine, involving carpet time, story times and early phonics sessions. The children also have access to free school milk and fruit every session.
This half term
This half term we have been thinking about ‘Our World’. We started with the story of The Snail and the Whale where we thought about the seaside. We also enjoyed collecting and observing some snails of our own from the Nursery garden! We have read and learnt all the actions to the story We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. If you haven’t heard us telling the story yet, you should ask! This has also helped us with practicing our positional language. We have also been very lucky to have two visitors. The Life Bus came to visit to tell us all about looking after ourselves and the librarian came to read us a story and give us a special book.
As Headteacher I would like to welcome you all to our school. Ruislip Gardens Primary School is a very special place. Visitors comment positively about the school, from the children’s behaviour and their enthusiasm to the staffs ongoing commitment and dedication. We understand the power of education and take very seriously our duty to give your children the best start in life. I am personally very proud to be a member of this community.
The school recognises the value and uniqueness of each individual child and adult at Ruislip Gardens. We celebrate the talents and gifts of each child and enable them to develop to their full potential spiritually, morally, academically, socially and physically.
Our shared vision “Growing and Achieving Together” underpins all we believe in. Our core values
- Providing a safe and nurturing environment

show how Ruislip Gardens is dedicated to ensuring we help all our children become successful and happy young people. Their learning and personal development are our driving force.
With support and advice from all our stakeholders we were able to develop Ruislip Gardens 4 Life-long Values:
Each value has a definition, which you can read in the vision and values
section of the website.
I would like to extend an invitation to you to visit our school if you have
not already, where you are guaranteed a warm welcome. Finally I would
