The South Lee Family

Children transitioning from our Early Years, move effortlessly into the more structured learning environment of the Pre-Prep. Here, key focus is on the development in English and Maths, which has already started in the EYFS. In addition, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum going beyond the National Curriculum to include  Geography, History, Science, ICT, French, Art, Design, Music, Religious Studies,PE and PSHCE.

South Lee Pre-Prep is a happy, friendly and nurturing environment. We aim to help each individual to thrive both academically and socially. We believe that every child should feel confident, happy, secure and valued.

We provide a supportive and secure environment in which each child can flourish, learn at their own pace and in their own individual way.  Class sizes are a maximum of 20 pupils. Each class has their own class teacher and there is at least one teaching assistant per year group who is able to offer individual support. The teacher will differentiate accordingly to meet the needs of each of our children.

The majority of the lessons are taught by the class teacher, but  ICT, Music, PE, and French are all taught by specialist teachers. We stimulate and encourage children’s development and enjoyment of learning through a variety of different teaching styles.

Our superb learning support team work alongside the class teacher and monitor each child’s progress to ensure they are achieving their full potential.

The teachers in Pre Prep have an ‘open-door’ policy.We are always available to discuss your child’s progress and want to know, as quickly as possible, about any concerns or celebrations that you have.

We look forward to meeting you.
