Foundation Stage

The Foundation Stage curriculum is designed specifically for pupils aged 3-5 years. It consists of 7 areas of learning. These are Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Expressive arts and Design, Physical Development, and Understanding the World. (The skills and knowledge in these areas are developed through practical, hands on, play based learning and social interaction).


We build on previous knowledge, from home, playgroups, Nurseries, etc. and take each child’s learning and development forward by providing opportunities where every child feels valued and can succeed in an atmosphere of care and trust.

National Curriculum

We follow the National Curriculum 2014 which consists of 10 subjects in the Primary Phase – English, Mathematics, Science, Design & Technology, History, Geography, Art & Design, Music, Physical Education and Computing.


We also teach Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE) in every year group and French in Key Stage 2.

Our Long Term Plans provide an overview for each subject for each year group.
