St Benedicts's Primary School

EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage)

The school follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in Reception.

This is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. We hope your child’s early year’s experience will be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure; and support their development, care and learning needs.

  • There are 7 areas of learning and development which guide professionals’ engagement with your child’s play and activities as they learn new skills and knowledge. These are: Communication and Language, Physical Development, PSED, Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
  • Children will be assessed at the end of the Reception year on the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile.
  • The expected levels that your child should reach at age 5 are called the “Early Learning Goals (ELGs)”
