Early Years and Foundation Stage

Welcome to our Early Years Foundation Stage - Reception and Year 1

In Reception and Year One, we provide high-quality EYFS education, giving children a secure and confident start to their school life. We are committed to nurturing a lifelong love of learning, alongside the aims of the EYFS Statutory Framework. We strive for high standards, consider the development of the whole child and seek to foster resilience and independence. We are inclusive and welcoming to all and British values are embedded into all that we do. We aim to provide the essential knowledge that children need to prepare them for their future success and to give children the best possible start to their early education.


To do this we plan our curriculum so that it can:


o Broaden minds and children’s outlook on life
o Provide experience of awe and wonder
o Reduce disadvantage
o Consider children’s backgrounds and experiences
o Develop knowledge and understanding of the community and wider world
