0-5 Years


Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage at The Northumberland Church of England Academy.  Your child is entering an important stage in their development and we want to make sure that their Early Years experience is fun.   Whether you are having a go at Superhero writing or making a castle for a Disney princess, our caring staff will support your child by providing lots of interesting activities that make Early Years an exciting place to learn.

Children can access a place in the Early Years at NCEA at age two, three or four years.  Each of the five Primary Campuses offers part time Nursery and full time Reception places.  Three of our Primary campuses; Josephine Butler (Robert Stephenson site); William Leech and Thomas Bewick offer two year old provision. All campuses welcome visits from parents.
