Growing Excellence, Inspiring Success

Early Years Foundation Stage


Welcome to our Early Years Foundation Stage

In our EYFS, we encourage our children to be: 

  • Communicators
  • Investigators
  • Collaborators
  • Independent
  • Risk-Takers
  • Resilient
  • Confident
  • Individuals
  • Creative
  • Safe 
  • Happy

Our EYFS Team encourage and support the children by:

  • Providing an enabling environment in which children can develop these roles and skills;
  • Building positive relationships with all members of staff but especially their Key Person;
  • Providing rich experiences, such as Forest School, multi-cultural visitors and probing life's 'Big Ideas';
  • Growing the vocabulary of our children through the Word Aware approach and quality interactions;
  • Challenging them to move their thinking and learning on to their next step;
  • Providing balanced opportunities to develop through child-initiated, adult-initiated and adult-directed activities.

"We are a team and we work hard together. We are all equal to each other."

Tim Peake (first British astronaut to visit the International Space Station)
