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:
