Stretton Sugwas Academy 

Formerly Stretton Sugwas C of E Primary School

Welcome to New Bees

Our newly extended EYFS building opened in September 2018, Set in rural Herefordshire we offer quality education and care to children aged 2-4 and a Reception class. 

We offer a high standard of care and quality of learning from a child’s early age providing an engaging, exciting and creative environment. Within New Bees we believe in creating a happy, safe and secure place for children and families to thrive in. 

"Bee"long: What are we learning together this term?

Within New Bees we take pride in providing carefully planned and structured activities built around each child’s individual interests. 

We believe that early skills are developed through learning through play which we embed into our planning. We also take full advantage of our surrounding environment with local walks, visiting local farms and watching our local farmer in the field.

The children very naturally become a part of the community and our school and understand the different occupations of life. These activities are constantly building upon their personal, communicative and physical skills. 

During each term we implement a topic-based approach selecting a familiar story to build and develop children’s interests and abilities.


We hold a strong connection with the school sharing ideas and space ensuring our children know the staff and children of the school well supporting families and children on their transitions to school. 

We liaise closely with the teachers and pupils to ensure our children are ready for school, as well as the next year group.
