Early Years Foundation Stage

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (2021) for our pupils at a level which is appropriate for them. Our pupils are supported in working towards their long-term Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) outcomes, as well as make progress towards the Early Learning Goals.

Our prime areas of focus are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical development
  • Communication and Language

We then support learning and provide a broad curriculum in which our pupils can strengthen and develop in these prime areas. One way we do this is by supporting pupils to develop and progress in the specific areas;

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

Regular observations, as recorded in their online portfolios on Evidence 4 Learning, monitor the characteristics of effective learning and ensure our Reception pupils are developing as learners.  We ensure that positive relationships with our specialist staff and enabling environments within our specialist provision, maximise opportunities for our pupils to develop as learners.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The progress my son has made is phenomenal, we couldn’t be happier.

We feel very lucky that he is in this school.
