Early Years Foundation Stage

Welcome to our Early Years Foundation Stage.

Our Philosophy of Learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage

Every child should be provided with a safe and stimulating environment that builds on their individual needs and interests. Children deserve to have a positive start to school and develop their confidence and motivation for learning in the future. Children should have the opportunity to learn through high quality practical play both inside and outside. Learning should be fun, engaging and challenging.

Aims of our Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum

Though effective teaching and learning opportunities we will ensure that all children are enabled to:

  • Feel valued and heard as individuals
  • Be independent, curious, creative and resilient learners, researching the world around them, following their own fascinations
  • Be able to identify and communicate their own needs and feelings
  • Respect themselves, each other, their communities and environment
  • Feel safe and secure and have a sense of belonging and strong attachments
  • Establish effective and supportive relationships
  • Have high aspirations, build on their previous best and excel in whatever they choose to do
