Starting School


The move from nursery to ‘big school’ can feel like a huge step, for you as well as your child. To help allay any anxieties you might have, we have signposted a selection of resources you may find useful.


Your child will be entering their Reception Year, the first year in primary education following on from their Pre-school and Nursery education. Reception children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS) which supports them to achieve Early Learning Goals by the end of the year. Children then move into Year 1 and start the National Curriculum.
All areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum are provided daily in both independent and adult supported learning experiences.

These areas are:
● Personal Social and Emotional Development
● Communication and Language
● Physical Development
● Literacy
● Mathematics
● Understanding the World


Further details of the EYFS can be found by following the link below.
