What We Do

Our foundation stage curriculum is based on the 2024 Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.

The EYFS framework includes 7 areas of learning and development that are equally important and inter-connected. However, 3 areas known as the prime areas are seen as particularly important for igniting curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building children’s capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.

The prime areas are:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development

The prime areas are strengthened and applied through 4 specific areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

Our curriculum aims to give all learners the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. We aim to support the learning of all children at every level through carefully planned activities and provision both indoors and outdoors, providing quality interactions between adults and children and extending children’s learning through challenge and questioning. Our themes for learning are taught through stories; learning is therefore directly linked to theme specific knowledge and vocabulary. Puppets, props and actions are used when telling stories and learning songs and nursery rhymes in foundation stage, giving children a fun, interactive introduction to rhyme and story language. Where possible we provide real-life experiences to give learning a context and purpose.
