Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Reception class ensures that our children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. We offer our children a broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.
Areas of Learning
There are seven areas of learning and development. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected. The seven areas are broken down into the prime and the specific areas.
The prime areas are important for building a foundation for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, forming relationships and thriving.
These are the prime areas:
• communication and language
• physical development
• personal, social and emotional development
The specific area are where the three prime areas are strengthened and applied.
These are the specific areas:
• understanding the world
• expressive arts and design
