Early Years Curriculum

Our EYFS curriculum aims to provide children with an engaging, exciting and empowering curriculum that aids them in becoming strong, resilient, independent learners. The curriculum is designed based on each cohort’s interests and builds upon children’s prior learning and provides first hand learning experiences while allowing children to work on those key ‘Prime areas’ and become creative thinkers.

Children are introduced to a range of topics through which early literacy and mathematics are taught, alongside key skills in all other aspects of the curriculum. These are flexible and adaptable dependent on the children’s interests and needs, with the purpose of ensuring high engagement from all learners. Children are taught vitals skills which help them to become independent learners who are able to problem solve, show their creativity in their work and be proud of what they achieve. At the heart of this lies the characteristics of effective learning.


Children are also able to lead their own learning, which adults can scaffold and progress, through engaging resources, questioning and encouragement to take risks.
