Ethos and Vision for our children

Our children are at the heart of everything that we do and we build our curriculum around their needs and interests. We observe, assess, teach and review impact through 'In the moment planning' using play as the vehicle for learning. Our children free flow through out the day between engaging and purposefully organised inside and outside environments. Early reading, writing, phonics and maths skills are taught in short directed teaching inputs, the children then apply these skills independently in our enabling environment. The children's interests drive the themes for our learning journey as well as seasonal changes and celebrations. We aim to capture the awe and wonder of childhood making every moment memorable so our children learn deeply and can apply their skills in different contexts. We build a strong home school partnership to ensure our children feel secure and blended learning is consistent and playful.

To find out more about our EYFS ethos and vision please refer to our EYFS policy.
