As a beach school, we have 7 beach school leaders (level 3) and 4 of the beach school practitioners are outdoor first aid trained. When planning for beach school and assessing the children we use the whole development of the child (holistic development), every area of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework (EYFS) is covered in beach school.
Within walking distance from the nursery is Scarborough’s north bay, we explore the rock pools; looking are the living creatures in them, sand activities and paddling. We do use other beaches on the coast such as, Cayton bay, Flamborough north landing and Scarborough south bay and access these by minibus.
When choosing a beach to visit, it depends on what is planned for the session, the beaches are so different that they have their own purpose. For more information, please click on the following links:
