The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) refers to our Nursery and Reception classes. In these year groups the youngest children in our School community learn a wealth of skills they continue to use throughout their lives. Children learn to play with and alongside others, they learn to interact in a positive way securing essential social skills. In the EYFS children learn through play and are encouraged and supported to explore a range of activities and experiences. The environment enables children to develop the attributes of great learners and helps to grow interested, curious, confident and thoughtful children.
