Rhodes Avenue School benefits from spacious grounds and outdoor spaces. The children are accommodated in a range of buildings: the Foundation Stage building for the full time nursery and reception children, the Key Stage 1 building for Years 1 and 2 and the Key Stage 2 building for Years 3 to 6. We also have two additional buildings that provide the following facilities – a media/computing suite, an art room, a dedicated music space, a part time Nursery and an After-school club (15:30 – 18:00).
Children in our Nursery have the allocated 15 hours (morning sessions 8.45-11.45) or 30 hours (Core hours 9.00-15.00) per week. However we also offer parents/carers the opportunity to extend the allocated 15 hours if they do not meet the Governments Criteria for extended provision. The School’s extended day provision runs from 7.40 until 18.00 Monday-Friday.
