Children learn in different ways and at different rates, we believe every child should be supported during their early years in school to help them fulfil their potential. We work hard to develop positive home school links during our Early Years and spend time at the start of each New Year getting to know our children and their families. This is continued throughout the year through our ‘Special’ books, a learning journey which charts individual progress and key moments in the development of each child. We work together as a team to get it right for the children and to ensure their first steps in education are positive and fulfilling. We follow the statutory framework for Early Years Foundation Stage providing a range of learning opportunities to provide a breadth of experiences on which to build. Learning opportunities are designed to capture the child’s imagination and are planned around their interests. Activities are play based and can be adult led, supported by an adult or child initiated. Children acquire skills through the prime and specific areas of learning in EYFS. We set challenging goals and our expectations are high.
