The Early Years (EYFS)

The Early Years team follow the framework for the EYFS. This framework explains how and what your child will be learning to support their healthy development.

Throughout their time in the EYFS, your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through seven areas of learning and development.

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

Of course, every child is different and some are more ready for school than others. Our team are very skilled at working to support each child dependent on their needs and their progress through the EYFS. They will work to assess the children when they start at school to work out where they are on the framework and how best to support them. This is a bit like the curriculum in the main school, but it’s suitable for very young children, and it’s designed to be very flexible so that staff can follow your child’s unique needs and interests.

In the Early Years we are dedicated to achieving the best possible outcomes for all children. We work as a team to ensure we provide high quality provision. We believe in providing a safe, vibrant and stimulating environment, with trusting, enabling and caring staff who help every child to reach their full potential.

The child is the centre of all learning and we plan provision around needs and interests to help develop a love of learning. We understand the importance of providing learning opportunities to encourage children’s thinking, questioning and problem solving skills both inside and outside the classroom.

We are committed to giving our children the best possible start to school life.  Teaching them to have self-belief; to persevere and to lead a healthy lifestyle to help them grow and develop now and in the future.
