Early Years

Welcome to The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

In the Early Years Foundation Stage our aim is to provide a creative, happy and safe environment in which children can build the foundations that enable them to become confident, independent and successful life long learners.

We value your feedback.

The EYFS continually strives to improve its provision and we greatly value your feedback. The "3 Stars and a Wish" form is a very simple way to feed back to us how we’re doing. We simply ask you what you liked “a star” and what you think we could improve “a wish”. You can fill in a form at any time during the year, either to comment generally, or to feedback on a specific event. Please hand your completed form to a member of the team.

Contributing to your child’s Learning Journal

WOW! Cards give all parents and carers a chance to contribute to their child’s School Learning Journal. These cards can be used to share things your child has done or achieved outside of school. Maybe your child has shown a new skill? Used something they have learnt in school at home? Or made a significant achievement in swimming or Gym? You can record your child’s achievement on a WOW! Card or send us a photograph and we will celebrate this in school and add the information to your child’s School Learning Journal. Thank you to all the parents who are already contributing WOW! Cards it’s wonderful to see how the children are growing and changing so fast.
