About Hedgehog Class
Hedgehog Class caters for the youngest pupils at Westfield School. Nursery provision opened in April 2016; this means the pupils in Hedgehog Class range from 2 to 7 years old. Students are taught following the guidelines of the Early Years Curriculum, which is tailored to their individual needs.
The predominant characteristic of learning is ‘playing and exploring’, with this in mind each session is play based where children practise and enhance new skills through child initiated play. Staff lead focus tasks to support pupils in acquiring new skills; all pupils access visual timetables and schedules to support them in their learning journey.
