Early Years Foundation Stage EYFS - Reception Class

As staff and trustees we want children to be happy, confident, well rounded individuals with a love for learning.  We believe in providing all children with a safe and stimulating environment that builds on each individual’s wants, needs and interests.

Children should have the opportunity to learn through play. Learning should be fun, engaging and suitably challenging. We value the importance of our outdoor environment and believe that it offers children the opportunity to develop their thinking and problem solving skills. Adults provide high quality interactions; they are role models for learning.

We are committed to providing the best possible start to their school life, teaching them skills and giving them experiences which will ensure their well-being now and success in the future.

The EYFS curriculum, which follows the children's interes and links into whole school topics where appropriate, ensures that we plan learning opportunities in the following areas:

Prime Areas

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development

Specific Areas

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the World; including a study of faith including Christianity
  • Expressive Arts and design
