Welcome to Pre-school at Park Hill Primary School and what will be a brand new venture for 2018-2019, taking what was best about our Nursery and Playgroup to create a flexible, Early Years provision for all your childcare needs.

We aim to introduce children to learning in a play-based environment that suits their needs and various learning styles. We both educate and nurture the smallest of children to meet their highest potential in readiness for their school experience.

Learning takes places both indoors and outdoors, in an environment shaped by the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Pre-School really is the best place to be!

We hope your child enjoys Pre-School as much as we will. For more information, please look at our Pre-School blog.

Every morning there will be a member of staff at the door to welcome your child into school, and will be available to answer any questions or queries. If you wish to make an appointment with your child’s class teacher to discuss anything further, please contact the school office.



Mrs Phillips

Hello and welcome to Reception! My name is Mrs Phillips and I am one of the Reception class teachers and the Early Years Phase Leader at Park Hill Primary School. This is my 5th year at Park Hill Primary school, and before that, I taught in Solihull and Cheshire. I have taught in EYFS, KS1 and KS2. I am a married mummy to a wonderful little boy. I enjoy days out with my family and socialising with friends.

I love teaching in Reception and developing children’s passion and enthusiasm for learning. Play is such an important part of our curriculum as it where children apply the skills which we have learnt, this is what makes Early Years such a special place to be!

Mrs Tarry

Hi, my name is Mrs Tarry and I have worked at Park Hill for the last 8 years. I am lucky enough to have worked across the school and this will be my second year in Reception. I love my job because no two days are the same. It is a privilege to be able to work with children; to watch them grow, develop and become lifelong learners (with lots of laughs along the way).

At home I am mum to three wonderful children who keep me very busy. In my spare time I am a keen horse rider, love socialising with my friends and going on family days out.



Viking invasion – the great debate!

This week in topic we have become Vikings, debating which country we should invade using our powers of persuasion and the techniques we’ve learned in English. We decided that the United Kingdom and The Netherlands were worth a trip. 9E1D1224-B153-48BE-A1C6-5705D58DCD2E 97479F65-4310-433E-BDF5-7DC380580F97 02B7173A-339B-48AE-8E89-844E0A162895

Year 1’s Aeroplanes

Max says I really liked today’s lesson because we got to make and fly planes. Esme says I liked colouring in the aeroplanes and putting decorations on them. Arthur says today’s lesson was great because we got to make our own aeroplanes and I made mine colourful.
