Foundation Stage 1 & 2 Curriculum

Our Early Years curriculum is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework. This includes the seven Areas of Learning and Development. The first three are known as the Prime Areas (Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development). These develop quickly in response to relationships and experiences. The Prime Areas of Learning and Development support and scaffold the four Specific Areas (Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design) which include essential skills and knowledge to ensure that children have the best possible start to their learning journey. 

These skills, experiences and learning opportunities are presented to the children through meaningful play contexts and adult led activities, which ensure that each child can play and explore in an active and engaging environment that allows them to be creative, think critically and take risks to achieve more (Characteristics of Effective Learning).

 The Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage document below contains important information including, Educational Programmes of Study and the Early Learning Goals which children are expected to achieve by the end of reception.
