The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework
The first year of primary school is the Reception Class, which follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework.
The EYFS framework is used to plan activities to support each child's development and learning until the end of the Reception year. Throughout the year, teachers who teach in the EYFS meet with the Headteacher to track pupil progress against all areas of the EYFS curriculum. Progress will be reported to parents so that you are fully aware of what your child is good at and where they might need extra support. At the end of the year, your child’s progress against the Early Learning Goals will be assessed and reported to you. This assessment will be used by your child’s teacher to begin planning their learning at the start of Year 1.
The areas of Learning in the EYFS are:
- Communication and language
- Physical development
- Personal, social, and emotional development
- Understanding of the world
- Expressive arts and design
