Our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum is met through an approach based on continuous provision in a play based environment. Like all other areas of our school, staff constantly refine and adjust their practice to ensure that it is not only fully meeting our children’s needs but providing a solid foundation which will lead them into the National Curriculum in Year 1 and beyond.
Each child has access to an education that is uniquely suited to them as individual learners. Provision is accessed both indoors and outdoors to support the achievement of the Early Learning Goals through the seven Areas of Learning which are made up of-
Three Prime areas
Communication and Language
Personal Social & Emotional Development
Four Specific Areas-
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts & Design

Everyday is unique. However a typical day involves the children on arrival at school, self registering and filling up their water bottles before accessing the continuous provision areas. During this time individual readers are heard.
Our day consists of three adult led input sessions which are Maths, Phonics and English which provide the children with the skills they need in order to play and learn about their own interests which in turn, builds their independence.
For further information about teaching Maths, Phonics and English, see the linked pages below.
The remainder of the day is child led, continuous provision which includes weekly challenges to consolidate learning.
Each week, there is one focus child who is closely supported in their learning and next steps identified.
