Welcome to Mepal and Witcham Pre-school, a voluntary and charitable organisation.
Situated in the Mepal and Witcham Primary School, we are a community pre-school, which is affiliated to the Early Years Alliance. We comply with Ofsted standards and were last inspected by Ofsted in April 2018 when we were graded “Good”. To read the report click here.
The sessions run every week-day morning during term time. We have children from Mepal and Witcham and also the surrounding villages i.e. Sutton and Chatteris. Many of the children go on to Mepal and Witcham C of E Primary School and we maintain a strong link with the school, especially for the rising 5’s in their final term with us.
We provide a safe and stimulating environment in which children are encouraged to learn through play. Achieving this involves everyone, the children, the staff and their supporting Committee team, and of course you, the parents.
When children first arrive, we do observations and set next steps within a few weeks. We work closely with parents before they come to pre-school, offering home visits, with starting points like ‘ All About Me’. We are on the register of providers for vulnerable 2’s.Please take a look around our website where you will find information about the pre-school, including all our policies and registration forms. In case of any queries that have not been answered on these pages please contact the pre-school.
The Pre-School’s current intake is predominately white British. As of June 2019 we have 21 children, 8 boys and 13 girls. We currently have no children with EAL. 12 children will start school in September 2019. We have identified 3 child as needing additional support.
Every term we do a cohort summary to identify any gaps, and when gaps are identified we set objectives to help these children.
