Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage Information Page

Our EYFS Vision:
To be an inclusive EYFS in which all children enjoy an outstanding learning experience, make good progress and leave EYFS as creative, motivated and enthusiastic learners who will be brave when learning, never afraid to try new things and have the social, cognitive and linguistic skills needed to succeed in the next stage of their education.

Early Years Foundation Stage

To build resilience and an enthusiasm for learning, children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in our inclusive Foundation Stage. Our high quality learning environment encourages our children to become motivated, creative, independent learners and thinkers who want to find out more about the world around them through mostly child-initiated learning. They will develop the social, cognitive and linguistic skills needed to succeed in the next stage of their education.

The Early Year Foundation Stage curriculum is based on seven areas of learning:

  • Communication and Language
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Mathematics
  • Literacy
  • Understanding of the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
