The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
At Brent Knoll School we believe that the Early Years and Foundation Stage (EYFS) is integral to providing the building blocks for children’s life-long learning and development. Through purposeful and meaningful play alongside real-life experiences, children consolidate and contextualise their learning. Children are encouraged to ‘have a go’ at new things and take risks while we nurture their self-confidence, allowing them to become the best that they can be.
The EYFS Curriculum
The EYFS curriculum is carefully planned with an emphasis on purposeful play and real-life experiences through a balance of adult-led and child-initiated activities that reflect the special educational needs of our pupils. The EYFS curriculum details the topics that are taught through a cross-curricular approach.
The EYFS policy details the expectations within the EYFS along with the relevant legislation and acts as a guide to ensure the EYFS curriculum continues to provide outstanding learning and development.
