The Nursery and Reception classes use the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as the basis of their curriculum. Development Matters statements are used to assess the children through the Nursery and Reception years. Our teachers plan for children to develop skills in the ‘prime areas’ of learning; Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Physical Development. They also plan for the specific areas of learning; Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Art and Design. The skills and knowledge the children develop through following the curriculum help them to make progress towards achieving the  ‘The Early Learning Goals’ and gaining a ‘Good Level of Development’ at the end of Reception which will give them a good start as they enter into Key Stage 1.
