"Teaching in the Early Years Foundation Stage enables children to make good progress. As well as effective teaching of key skills, children are helped to think about what they are learning and to develop the skill of working by themselves.”

Nursery is at the start of the Early Years Foundation Stage where learning is
carefully planned and structured, with an emphasis on activities that are fun and
motivating for each child. The EYFS curriculum supports children's learning
through planned and spontaneous play and is organised into the following seven
areas of learning:

The three prime areas are:

Communication and language

Physical development

Personal, social and emotional development


The four specific areas are:



Understanding of the world

Expressive arts and design

Our children are given regular opportunities to visit and work with the rest of the
school, to participate in assemblies and other whole school activities. The
Nursery and Reception classes work very closely together providing continuity
and ensuring a smooth transition in to full time education.
