Early Years and Nursery

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

KS1 and KS2

Children are provided with a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum that is carefully planned to meet the needs of individuals. English, Maths and Science have a very high profile as core subjects of the National Curriculum. The school actively promotes the government literacy and numeracy curriculum 2014.
