Typically each year we have a higher proportion of boys to girls, however this year it is a little more even (10:8) and predominantly have a white British cohort – currently 94% also 6% Greek. At present 89% of our children have English as their first language, with 11% bilingual (Greek/ English and Italian/ English).
Our catchment area for the setting is Fowlmere, Great Chishill, Heydon and Chrishall Grange in line with the catchment for our feeder primary school, although we also have children attend outside of catchment such as Newton, Shepreth, Melbourn, Barrington, Orwell and Foxton. 50% of children attending at present live within our catchment area. 22% of our cohort are in receipt of 30 hours government funding.
We currently have 0 SEND children and have helped families’ access additional services and support to assist with their additional needs in the past. We currently have 0% children in receipt of EYPP or claiming 2 year funding. All of our families consist of at least one working parent and 100% of our current cohort of children consist of two parent families.
