Foundation Stage Guides

Information, guides and policies regarding our Foundation Stage.
 
Foundation Stage consists of our Nursery and Reception classes. We assess children on entry so that we can be specific in our provision to help them develop in the Prime and Specific Areas of Learning.
 
The Prime areas are: Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Communication and Language Development.
 
The Specific Areas are: Literacy and Numeracy.
 
Underpinning these are the children's development in the characteristics of effective learning - engagement, involvement, critical thinking and creativity. If these are not catered for, children will not progress in their learning.
 
Below are copies of our Foundation Stage booklets and information. We hope you find them useful.
