St Benedicts's Primary School

EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage)

The school follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum during Nursery and 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 years 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 Art.

· Children will be assessed against Developmental Matters Framework Bands and parents will be told about your child’s progress throughout the EYFS.

· The expected levels that your child should reach at age 5 are called the “Early Learning Goals (ELGs)”

There is also guidance for the professionals supporting your child on planning the learning activities, and observing and assessing what and how your child is learning and developing.
