Vision and Aims

The Early Years Foundation Stage, will be a safe place where children who are kind and respectful can develop, with a smile on their face,  the confidence, independence and resilience to achieve their personal aspirations and be the best that they can be.

In order to achieve our vision, in The Early Years Foundation Stage we will

  • Provide a safe, secure, stimulating and purposeful environment where children are motivated, challenged and excited to learn and discover new things
  • Value and nurture children’s curiosity and creative thinking and encourage them to become confident to communicate their ideas
  • Encourage the children to show ‘thoughtfulness and respect’ to each other and follow our Golden Rules
  • Develop within our children a pride in their community, their school and their own achievements
  • Celebrate diversity and be fully inclusive in everything we do
  • Lay the foundation for children to lead healthy lives and become digitally responsible
  • Create a carefully structured exciting, imaginative curriculum which allows children to develop their own interests and enthusiasms within the “themes”, “principles” and “practice” of the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework
  • Build trust with parents and extended families, so that we can work collaboratively to support the pastoral and academic needs of each individual child
