Wharton CE Primary School Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
At Wharton CE Primary, we are committed to providing our children with the best possible start to their school life. Our curriculum provides opportunities for the children to build on prior learning through the provosion of forst-hand learning experiences. We endeavour to give our children the skills and knowledge they need for the future; giving each child the best start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their full potential and achieve future success.
EYFS Early Adopter Scheme
At Wharton CE Primary, we are pleased to say that we have chosen to be an early adopter school. This means that we are trialling the new Early Years curriculum and assessment that will become statutory for all schools in September 2021. The staff are already planning learning opportunities based on the new guidance and we are confident that the changes that have taken place will support us to continue to deliver an exciting and engaging curriculum. Within this framework, there are four guiding principles which shape our practice.
- Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured
- Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships
- Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers
- Children develop and learn in different ways, (see "the characteristics of effective teaching and learning" at paragraph 1.9 in the attached document - Statutory Framework) and at different rates. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
