The Early Years Foundation Stage Areas of Learning and Development

Our Curriculum Intent

Our EYFS curriculum aims to provide opportunities for our children to develop as independent, confident, successful learners with high aspirations who know how to make a positive contribution to their community and wider society.

Our goal is to ensure that all children are happy and engaged.


Through our child led curriculum, we provide an environment that allows each child to display high levels of concentration, creativity, energy and persistence. The rational behind this is that high levels of well-being and involvement lead to high levels of child development and indicate deep level learning.


This curriculum concept should result in significant changes in a child’s learning capacity, leading to better outcomes in relationships and life in general.


We believe that children need rich opportunities to initiate ideas and activities, to help them experience the awe and wonder of the world in which they live so that they develop the learning characteristics that will support lifelong learning.


Through the EYFS curriculum that we provide, the children continually demonstrate their ability to:


- play and explore

- learn actively

- create and think critically 


We hope that all children will be inspired and motivated to actively participate in the curriculum: experiencing enjoyment and transitioning into key stage one with confidence and character to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world.
