Early Years

Early Years Foundation Stage


It is the aim of the school to provide a broad, well-balanced, play-based early years’ curriculum which considers each child's individual needs, enabling them to become enthusiastic self-motivated learners.  We recognise that at this age children require an active learning environment where they can build on their enthusiasms and individual experiences and that the curriculum should be flexible enough to reflect a wide range of developmental needs.  We also feel that it is important to value each child's background, culture and traditions as an important part of their initial experiences. 

We are current following the guidance in the below document (Development Matters) to plan an exciting, purposeful and challenging curriculum for the children in the Nursery and Reception classes.
