Welcome to Ifield Nursery
Acorn Class is Ifield School’s nursery provision based in Kings Farm Primary School where it offers an inclusive environment that welcomes children from the age of 2 years. The long-standing collaboration between Ifield School and Kings Farm Primary School has been further strengthened since the two schools formally joined together to form the Cedar Federation in 2015.
Acorn Class has access to all the facilities and resources of Kings Farm Primary School whilst also benefiting from the additional opportunities that Ifield’s specialist provision can offer. Pupils in Acorn Class enjoy Ifield’s hydrotherapy pool and sensory room and extend their learning within Ifield’s Woodland facility.
The Acorn Class team of specialist staff supports up to six pupils per session on the basis of observation and assessment of learning needs.
Pupils are referred through the Local Authority and funding is agreed for time limited periods of assessment.
The pupils’ needs are established and shared with parents through closely monitored Early Years Personalised Plans. Some pupils will be referred for statutory assessment and all pupils will receive a recommendation for placement at statutory school age to either a mainstream or specialist facility.
