Foundation Stage

Our Foundation Stage links home and school. It begins a learning partnership which will carry the children through their Early Years education into Primary and onwards. Children are actively encouraged to explore their learning environment and are surrounded by examples of positive relationships. Learning inside and out utilises a range of resources and encourages active speaking and listening skills. Early independence, problem solving and confidence set the foundations for learning. Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Communication and Language, Mathematics, Understanding of the World, Physical Development, and Expressive Arts and Design are all interconnected. The children's daily routine draws from each area of the 'Early Years Foundation Stage' curriculum. Having their own separate learning and play areas within the school premises enables a smoother transition into big school.
