Early Years Foundation Stage

The Early Years Foundation Stage is for children beginning in Nursery at the age of 3 until leaving Reception at the age of 5. There are seven areas of learning: Communication & Language, Personal, Social & Emotional Development, Physical Development, Literacy, Numeracy, Knowledge and Understanding of the World and Creative Development. All children within the Early Years Foundation Stage work towards attaining the Early Learning Goals associated with these areas of learning.

At St George's CE Primary School, we plan purposeful activities and experiences with a balance of child-initiated and adult led activities. Play underpins all development and learning for young children and play, both indoors and outdoors, will enable your child to develop intellectually, creatively, physically, socially and emotionally. Children are assessed, through observation, on entry to school and during the Reception year.

The EYFS curriculum will be explained to you in more detail at information evenings for parents in the Summer Term before your child is due to start school.
