Curriculum Rationale

School Curriculum Drivers


  • Equality
  • Economic well-being

How does our EYFS curriculum prepare the children for the R-A-I-S-E Curriculum from Year 1?


  • A safe place to learn
  • Secure relationships with loving adults who nurture and care for the children
  • A love of learning
  • Inquisitive learners – igniting the flame of learning and inspiring interests
  • Resilient learners – we learn from our mistakes
  • Challenges are part of every day
  • Listening and attention – we instil positives attitudes to learning
  • The ability to question
  • Rich vocabulary & language – we believe children as young as 3 years can learn, understand and remember technical and high-level vocabulary e.g. metamorphosis, gastropod
  • Retention of powerful knowledge – our teaching sequences revisit skills and knowledge daily
  • Foundation skills in non-core NC subjects
  • Reading and phonics are given high priority – daily literacy, phonics, story-time, lowest 20% readers
  • Firm foundations in the basic maths skills – we love maths and believe maths is everywhere


 “Train up a child in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not depart from it.”


Proverbs 22 v6
