This section of our website will give an overview of our curriculum.
Early Years Foundation Stage
The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum is made up of seven areas of learning and development – Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Communication & Language; Physical Development; Numeracy; Literacy; Knowledge and Understanding of the World; and Expressive Arts and Design.
Assemblies throughout the year cover a range of themes and events. There is a rolling programme of themes which include SEAL themes. Festivals and events are also covered including religious festivals such as Easter, Christmas, Harvest, Divali and Hanukkah. Assemblies include a spiritual element which is predominantly Christian but also includes other world faiths. Events during the year include special days such as the patron saints days of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, Remembrance Day, Bonfire Night, etc. We regularly have visitors leading assemblies such as our local vicar Father McTee, and the PCSOs. Music is an important part of our assemblies and this includes regular singing and music from our composer of the week. Parents are invited to Class Assemblies, Harvest, the Christmas Carol Service and the Easter Service. The latter two are held in St Helen’s Church. We also hold special events to support national and local charities such as Macmillan, Red Nose Day, Children in Need and Comic Relief.
