Our EYFS comprises Nursery and Foundation 2 classes.  The information below gives further detail about our EYFS intent and implementation.  (Please also see the separate Subject Medium Term plans for KS1 and KS2 which show how the National Curriculum subjects builds on the Knowledge and Skills developed in the EYFS.)

The Early Learning Goals are the end of Reception Year statements that all our children will be assessed against. Those children who meet all the criteria under each area of development are said to have ‘met’ the early learning goal and working ‘at age-related expectations’.

Any children who meet all the early learning goals before reaching the end of Reception are continually given opportunities to develop skills and knowledge further and to apply their skills to ensure they have depth to their learning
