Early Years Foundation Stage
'Foundations for...Early Years'
We aim to teach children as individual learners with differing need and interests so that they develop a curiosity for learning and become resilient, confident learners able to tackle new situations and communicate their needs effectively. This will ensure that they are able to tackle the next stage in their education and build the firm foundations for a successful happy life.
Every child is given the opportunity to develop equally within the 7 areas of learning, Communication and language, Personal social and emotional development, Physical development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the world and Expressive arts and design.
We are committed to ensure that our provision meets these curriculum aims:
That children access a broad and balanced curriculum that gives them the wide range of knowledge and skills needed to create the ‘foundations for life’ enabling them to succeed in their next stage of their education.
The highest quality and consistency in teaching, assessment and learning is provided so that every child makes good progress and all children are challenged and supported
That the children learn within a safe, rich and stimulating environment both inside and outside in which creativity and expressiveness are valued and encouraged
Children take part in memorable, special outdoor learning experiences
Children develop the confidence to follow their own interests and provision reflects the needs and interests of the children
Children are taught how to develop strong friendships with peers and positive working relationships with staff so children feel safe and secure enough to express themselves.
