Early Years Foundation Stage

At Nancealverne School we have an Early Years Foundation Stage and the children follow the EYFS curriculum. Click on the link at the bottom of the page for the Foundation Stage curriculum map. 

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS, including childminders, preschools, nurseries and school reception classes. In our school we continue our EYFS provision for pupils up into Year 1 so that they have more time to build on their new foundation stage skills.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework supports an integrated approach to early learning and care. It gives all professionals a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children.

As well as being the core document for all professionals working in the foundation years, the EYFS framework gives mums and dads confidence that regardless of where they choose for their child’s early education, they can be assured that the same statutory commitments and principles will underpin their child’s learning and development experience.

Our areas of learning are Communication & Language, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Mathematics, Literacy, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

 We believe we can learn all this through play, sharing, being part of a team and having lots of fun! Please see our Class Acorns page for more information.
