The Early Years Foundation Stage is a curriculum for children from birth to five. We follow the curriculum in Nursery and Reception - it is based on 4 principles:
- A Unique Child
- Positive Relationships
- Enabling Environments
- Learning and Development
Each child learns skills, acquires new knowledge and demonstrates their understanding through
seven areas of learning and development.
The three Prime Areas of learning are:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development.
As the children develop, the Prime Areas help them to increase their skills in the four Specific
Areas of Learning:
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
In the Eastbury Community School Primary Phase, pupils will develop their knowledge and skills
through learning opportunities which are planned by their teachers. The EYFS encourages schools
and parents to work together in order to enable children develop to their full potential. Our EYFS
Curriculum will also support our pupils’ spiritual, moral and cultural development. The personal
development of children plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve.
