The Foundation Stage:

 

In the Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) we follow the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. This focuses on seven areas of learning;

The prime areas;

·         Communication and language

·         Physical Development

·         Personal, Social and Emotional Development

 

The specific areas

·         Literacy

·         Understanding of the World

·         Mathematics

·         Expressive Arts and Design

 

The curriculum during this vital part of your child’s early education provides the foundation upon which all other learning is based. We want your child to enjoy coming to school, to be enthusiastic about learning, and develop the confidence to ask questions and find out about the world around them.

A challenging, exciting, creative curriculum is the minimum right and need of our children.  To achieve this we have developed a broad and balanced curriculum with a skills based approach which meets the wide range of needs of all of our pupils and will help to make them successful, independent and lifelong learners. The national curriculum requirements are met through our themed approach whenever possible. This gives the children a focus for their term’s work, which results in increased motivation.  Any areas of the curriculum that do not fit in the planned topics are taught separately. Literacy and Numeracy are taught through a topic based approach where possible with the National Strategies providing the structure and guidance for teaching. Our curriculum is evaluated  and monitored on a regular basis through key stage meetings and the governors curriculum, standards and improvement committee.
