Early Years Foundation Stage

The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is based around seven areas of learning and development which are equally important and interconnected.  There are three prime areas which underpin the others igniting children's curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, developing their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.

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

These areas are strengthened and applied in four specific areas;

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

The EYFS (Phase 1) comply with the statutory requirements, including the welfare requirments, which can be found here:EYFS Statutory Requirements

Our school has a 60 place nursery in which we prepare our children for their primary years.

There are two classes of 30 children, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.  We liaise closely with a private provider to enable you to have through day care.

If you are considering sending your child to our nursery then please contact the school office for a visit.
