The Early Years Curriculum

Our Early Years Curriculum is based on the revised Early Years Foundation Stage (2012) and is planned to lead smoothly into the National Curriculum in KS1. Learning is relevant, meaningful and based on children’s interests and individual needs.

The National Curriculum is a framework used by all maintained schools to ensure that teaching and learning is balanced and consistent.

It sets out:

  • the subjects taught
  • the knowledge, skills and understanding required in each subject
  • standards or attainment targets in each subject – teachers can use these to measure your child’s progress and plan the next steps in their learning
  • how your child’s progress is assessed and reported

Within the framework of the National Curriculum, schools are free to plan and organise teaching and learning in the way that best meets the needs of their pupils.

In Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 we follow the ‘Letters and Sounds’ scheme for phonics and we use the Oxford Reading Tree as our core scheme for reading. Visit the Oxford Owl website to access additional information and e-books from the scheme. http://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/home/reading-owl/find-a-book/library-page?view=&agegroup=0&book=1&booktype=all&series=all#
