EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE
Pupils in the Nursery and Reception classes follow the Early Years Foundations Stage curriculum.
Your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development.
Children should mostly develop the 3 prime areas first. These are:
Communication and language;
Physical development; and
Personal, social and emotional development.
These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning.
As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:
Understanding the world; and
Expressive arts and design.
Children in the EYFS learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside.

We draw upon expertise from outside providers for this.
Speech Link is used in our setting to identify and support children with developmental speech sound difficulties. It helps us to decide who needs to be seen by a Speech and Language Therapist and helps support staff to work effectively with common speech sound errors.
