In Reception, we follow the Early Years Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.

This framework sets out the specific areas of learning we cover in our curriculum. These areas are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

We also include the learning of music, and ICT skills in our curriculum and devote specific time to the development of thinking skills.

Free Flow Play is an important part of the weekly timetable. The amount of time allocated to this will reduce as we progress through the academic year.
