Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage

We have an intake of 90 children split into three classes. We learn through a play based curriculum starting with the child's ideas and interests. We love to learn outdoors and take advantage of our three outdoor areas, where the children can 'free flow' all together outside.
We are lucky to have our new FOREST SCHOOL which is shared with the juniors. We love learning outdoors and the children benefit so much from having these experiences. We are currently fundraising for a yurt and lots of new equipment! 

The Early Years’ team work closely to deliver a curriculum which provides a balance across the areas of learning. We continuously observe and assess so we know every child's next steps to personalise their learning. 


Our curriculum is split into seven areas of learning:

The prime areas are:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development 
  • Personal, social and emotional development 

The specific areas are:

  • Literacy 
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world 
  • Expressive arts and design
