The Early Years Team


The Early Years Team comprises of Mrs Hollingshead who is the  Early Years Co-ordinator and Nursery Class Teacher (currently on Maternity Leave). To cover her maternity leave we currently have, Mrs Edwards and Miss Galinsky in Nursery. In Reception class we have Miss Grimley. Mrs Winkley (Deputy Head) is also now covering in Early Years. 

Mrs Fairclough and Mrs Cass are Nursery Nurses, and Mrs Brown is a  Learning Support Assistant along with Mrs Agate who work between both classes.



 Our Curriculum

At Westroyd we believe in providing children with first hand experiences. This means we create a learning environment where children can learn through play.


To find out more about learning through play please look at the powerpoint below. The links to our current planning can be found on the website on the 'About Us' section then 'Curriculum'.

What is Happening in Early Years?


To find out about what is currently happening in Nursery and Reception please take a look at the class pages section of the school website. Children- Class Pages.

 Every week there is an overview of what your child has been learning about including photographs. In addition curriculum newsletters are sent home at the beginning of every half term to give you more detailed information about your child's learning. 


Please feel free to speak to your child's class teacher at any time or any member of the Early Years team.
