|EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE|
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is based around four themes, each of which is linked to an important principle that we embrace throughout our school and which is reflected within our creative curriculum and its delivery. They are:-
A Unique Child
Every child is a unique child who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
Children learn to be strong and independent through the development of caring, secure and positive relationships with parents/carers and the teacher or teaching assistant who are supporting them within their class.
The internal and external environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning with adults being responsive to their differing and individual needs.
Learning and Development
Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of learning and development are equally important and inter-connected. The framework covers the education and care of all children in the early years, provision, including children with special needs and disabilities.
|EYFS FOUNDATION STAGE CURRICULUM|
The children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework (EYFS). Your child will be engaged in a variety of activities, providing a balanced and stimulating curriculum which will develop each child's potential. We develop children’s interests through observation whilst they are using the continuous provision this in turn informs our planning.
