Foundation Stage

The Foundation Stage Curriculum aims to provide learning opportunities that will underpin all future learning.  It starts when a child becomes three years old and continues until the end of the Reception Year.  Your children have already learnt a great deal by the time they start in the Infant School and so we seek to provide them with every opportunity to deepen their understanding and extend their learning.  Well-planned play is a key way in which your child will learn with enjoyment and challenge during this time.

Your child will mostly be taught through games and play.

The areas of learning are:

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development
  • literacy
  • mathematics
  • understanding the world
  • expressive arts and design
