Early Years Foundation Stage
Our vision for the early years is based on the premise that every child receives the very best provision which both inspires and engages them, engendering accelerated progress ensuring they have a solid base of key skills and are ‘school ready’ at the end of their Reception year.
To do this we have embedded a systematic approach which ensures the learning opportunities of all are enhanced. Our planning processes are robust and link with the knowledge we ascertain from our assessment practices.
Working alongside our enthusiasm is a dedication to develop and deepen our knowledge and systems. Working collaboratively is part of our highly successful strategy and has been critically important in the development of this planning and assessment methodology and practice.
Interwoven in our practice is the belief that high expectations for both the children and ourselves inspires and enables goals to be reached and exceeded. We are enthusiastic and driven. Our practice reflects our depth of knowledge.
We prioritise continual professional development which, led by outstanding teachers and inspired by current research, shares and enhances best practice.
