Foundation Stage Information

Children begin their learning journey in our foundation stage. This is a place full of happiness where children learn many key aspects. They have a rich curriculum with many opportunities to learn. They have a continuous provision where children are able to play and learn in a stimulating, welcoming environment. We have five classes in our foundation stage. Class 1 is our nursery where we have Oak and Willow Class and in Reception we have classes 2,3 and 4.

We teach the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage 2021.

The Reception children will be part of the Statutory Reception Baseline in September 2023.
