Our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) for children is based upon practical activities and learning through experience as well as creating opportunities for children to record their mark-making and early learning – often from their own-initiated play.

Children are encouraged to become independent and to develop the “I can do” approach from the youngest stages, whilst being introduced to all aspects of the curriculum and school life. The Foundation stage involves a specially designed curriculum for younger children which includes:

 Three Prime areas:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical

Four Core areas:

  • Mathematics
  • Literacy
  • Expressive Arts
  • Understanding the World

Information technology takes place throughout the day and is often linked to particular areas of the curriculum.
