Updates in the Early Years
From September 2021 academic year, both Nursery and Reception will be following the revised Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Guidance to inform our curriculum. The educational programmes will be developed by our skilled EYFS Team with the support of the new non-statutory guidance 'Development Matters'. Links to both documents can be found below:

Early Learning Goals (ELGs)
At the end of Reception year, the children will be assessed against the early learning goals. The document below explains what children are expected to be doing to be working at an expected level. If children are not quite ready to meet these goals, they will be emerging and will continue to work on them as they make the transition into Year One.
