Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1

The learning journey of our pupils begins within the Early Years and Foundation Stage (EYFS).
The Nursery caters for pupils with severe and profound needs and offers a variety of opportunities to explore, have fun, learn through play, interact with others and build friendships.
The Nursery follows the Government Early Years Foundation Stage guidelines.
For children, learning in the EYFS is all about making discoveries and exploring the world around them through child initiated play - exploring indoors and outdoors, and having structured activities throughout periods of the day.  Through this, children will begin to make choices and decisions for themselves, learn through fun and interesting activities, gain confidence in their own abilities, interact with others and grow as an individual.
Our classrooms and outdoor areas are well equipped to stimulate each child and allow pupils to play, learn and explore.
In Key stage one, learning continues to be ‘hands on’ and very interactive. Students encounter topic based learning which builds upon experiences shared within the foundation stage and introduces new concepts to further develop knowledge and skills. Pupils follow the National Curriculum.
