Welcome to Foundation Stage with Miss Harwood and Miss Steele in Nursery and Mrs Doherty, Mrs Goodwin and Mrs McGrory in Reception.
In Foundation Stage, we aim to deliver a curriculum that will excite, stimulate and challenge your child. We plan our Learning Environment so that children can access a wide range of planned play based activities, both indoors and outdoors as play is at the heart of how young children learn best. It enables children to extend their skills, develop their confidence and independence, develop their ability to solve problems and relate to others. Children are encouraged to use skills that enable them to be an effective learner by being curious, willing to have a go, being resilient, thinking of ideas and having a go and to be determined and proud of their achievements.
The Curriculum for the Early Years Foundation Stage underpins all future learning.
