Early Years Foundation Stage Vision and Aims
Intent, Implementation and Impact
“Teaching should not be taken to imply a ‘top down’ or formal way of working. It is a broad term that covers the many different ways in which adults help young children learn. It includes their interactions with children during planned and child-initiated play and activities: communicating and modelling language; showing, explaining, demonstrating, exploring ideas; encouraging, questioning, recalling; providing a narrative for what they are doing; facilitating and setting challenges. It takes account of the equipment adults provide and the attention given to the physical environment, as well as the structure and routines of the day that establish expectations.”

Here in our Early Years our intention is in line with our whole school vision. We are committed to forming positive relationships with every child and supporting the development of happy, confident and secure children who have a love of learning and demonstrate motivation and perseverance when facing learning challenges. We recognise that all children are individuals and we work hard to know them uniquely and understand their different learning styles. We ensure we provide a stimulating learning space, both inside and outside, that meets their learning needs but, also reflects their interests as well as meeting the needs of a broad and balanced curriculum.
