Hindon CEVA Primary School- Where Happy Children Learn!

Little Owls

Welcome to the Little Owls Class Page

Our Little Owls are the youngest children in our school. They are taught in our Early Years setting and have their own bright, colourful, purposefully designed classroom. They have access to a secure coutyard directly from the classroom and from there can access a beautiful, secure garden with a Mud Pie kitchen and sensory wild area.  A covered area provides shelter for all year round outside learning.

Miss Chloe Gill is our Early Years Teacher.


Miss Gill has trained as a Reggio Emilia teacher.


The Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood  education values the child as' strong, capable and resilient; rich with wonder and knowledge where every child has a deep curiosity and potential'. Similar to the  Montessori approach, Reggio Emilia believes that it is an innate curiosity which drives a child's interest to understand their world and their place within it.

Our Early Years environment and our approach to educating our youngest pupils is based on these principles.   

"From starting points that are often below age-related expectations, most children typically make good progress. School assessments show that children with no additional needs achieve a good level of development on entry to Year 1" Ofsted 2014

"Children’s physical well-being, health and emotional development are very well provided for through careful and detailed assessment of each child’s abilities and needs. Children’s achievements are recorded in attractive ‘Learning Journeys’ which present a very detailed picture of children’s attainment in all their areas of learning. Parents are encouraged to be involved in their children’s learning through contributions to the initial assessments when the children start at the school and through regular reports" Ofsted 2014

"The leadership of the early years provision is good. Early reading and mathematical skills are taught well" Ofsted 2014
