Early Years Curriculum

Your child’s ‘Learning Journey’ begins in Early Years. Early Years is the bedrock of all learning and is a critical stage of your child’s development. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the stage in your child’s life that gets them ready, prepares them for school and underpins all future learning and successes. The EYFS was created to ensure your child’s first 5 years are happy, active, exciting, fun, and secure, as well as to support their learning, development, and care needs. 


Throughout the EYFS:

  • Pupils will develop language acquisition and expand their vocabulary to become confident and effective communicators.
  • Pupils will extend their understanding in personal, social, and emotional development to become resilient and self-assured learners.
  • Pupils will be taught how to manage their feelings and behaviour in a range of situations.
  • Pupils will develop their knowledge in early literacy and mathematics.
  • Pupils will acquire a range of physical key skills including rolling, bowling, throwing, catching, fine and gross motor control.
  • Pupils will acquire a range of artistic key skills including drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, textiles, printing.
  • Pupils will explore the world around them and deepen their understanding of living things and the environment.
  • Pupils will experience a curriculum immersed in story and literature.
  • Pupils will begin to transfer their learning (taught skills) into the wider environment especially the outdoors and become competent problem solvers.


The Early Years curriculum is delivered through:

  • Well planned and purposeful play-based activities
  • Teacher directed lessons and learning activities.
  • Child led activities.
  • Opportunities for exploration, choice and decision making by the children.
  • Well-resourced indoor and outdoor environments

The Early Years Teaching Team seek to ensure that children are equipped with a range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good progress through school and life.
