Early Years

What do we want our curriculum to achieve?

  • Provide equality of opportunity so every child is included and supported
  • Provide a secure foundation where every child makes progress and ensure no child gets left behind
  • Provide planned learning and development opportunities which are around the needs of the children
  • Be challenging and enjoyable in all areas of learning and development
  • Ignite children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive
  • Enable children to play and explore; actively learn; create and think critically

How will we fulfil this?

  • Provide a broad and balanced curriculum based upon The Curriculum Guidance for Early Years and Foundation Stage.  All areas of learning and development are important
  • Place a strong emphasis on our six values
  • Offer a range of high quality core texts that are well thought out and challenging for every child to access during their learning journey
  • Key strategies are addressed over time and revisited
  • Connections are made between some curriculum areas whilst leaving some curriculum areas to be taught discretely
  • Build on and build from previous knowledge with the understanding of where we want our children to get to by the time they leave us.
