Year R

Our Aim:

To provide the Statutory Framework as set out below in a safe, fun and happy learning environment.


The Early Years Foundation Stage promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills, providing a good foundation for future progress through school and life” (DfE Statutory Framework for the EYFS)


In Year R all children are taught in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in the following areas:


The 3 prime areas are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development

The 4 specific areas are:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

A strong emphasis is placed on child initiated learning through the importance of play to reinforce all areas of learning. We believe that role-play and drama have a significant and positive impact on children’s learning and this is, therefore, included regularly in the teaching of the Early Years subjects.


What we do:

The children learn through a mix of teacher led, enhanced and child initiated activities. Please click below for details of the curriculum we teach throughout Year R.
