Early Years

Welcome to the Early Years Unit at Archibald!

The Early Years Unit is always staffed by at least three teachers and three members of support staff. All of these members of staff are Key Workers and will be responsible for your children when they are in school. The staff work collaboratively to ensure all children are happy, safe and secure, and they plan activities which allow for consistency and continuity across all ages and abilities.

Mrs McNally leads the EYFS team and the Early Years Unit.
