“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential”.  DfE – Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, 2012

At Zetland Primary School we believe that our Early Years Foundation Stage is crucial to developing firm foundations to be built upon throughout their educational journey.  It is our aim that the children who enter our EYFS develop physically, verbally, emotionally, creatively and intellectually.  We believe all children deserve an education rich in wonder and memorable experiences that allow children’s natural creativity and curiosity to flourish.  We want each child to reach their full potential whilst developing key skills to enable them to become well-rounded and ready to succeed.  We aim to provide the children with a challenging, safe, active learning environment both indoors and outdoors.  We aspire that, as children move into Year One, they have generated a love of learning and enjoyment of school and they have fostered and developed effective attitudes to learning.

“Children learn best when they are healthy, safe and secure, when their individual needs are met and when they have positive relationships with the adults caring for them”. (EYFS document 2007)

In EYFS, we have both a Nursery and Reception classroom within our setting.  We have two Nursery sessions – Mrs Boyes is our AM Nursery Teacher and Mrs Coupland is our PM Nursery Teacher.  Mrs Al-Dick and Miss Batey support our Nursery children alongside our teaching staff.  Mrs Fellows is our Reception Teacher, supported by Mrs Berry and Mrs Mehta.  Mrs Fellows is also our EYFS Team Leader.  Mrs Fellows and Mrs Coupland are both the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads for EYFS. .

Our Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum follows a child’s development from birth to 60+ months.  It is organised into seven areas of learning:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
