​​Action Research

Rothesay Nursery researched why some boys did not choose writing as an activity.  We looked at how we could encourage boys to become confident writers. We ran small groups to support the boys who were reluctant writers and looked at the impact of these groups had on individual children and boys as a whole. 

​We published the following report:

Secretary of State visit

In April 2018, we had a visit from the Secretary of State for Education, Damien Hinds, and the Minister of Children and Families, Nadhim Zahawi.

We welcomed the opportunity to promote the importance of early years and the work we are doing to improve children’s early language skills.
