Themes & Principles

The EYFS Curriculum


 In Reception our Foundation Stage children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework  (EYFS).  This curriculum is based upon four themes and principles.


The Unique Child - We understand that every child is an individual child who is capable in their own right. The holistic child has a variety of needs that need meeting over their time in the Foundation Stage.


Positive Relationships - Social interaction is key to children’s development. Children become strong, independent  learners;  as  well  as  scaffolding  their  learning  through  positive  social  interaction.


Enabling Environments - Providing a safe, secure and stimulating base for your children is key to their development. The framework allows for experiences that respond to the child’s individual needs/ interests; as well as developing a strong partnership between practitioners, parents and carers.


Learning and Development - Children develop and learn in different ways. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
