Early Years Foundation Stage

At East Morton CE Primary School, our Early Years curriculum provides opportunities for learners to gain skills and knowledge that will continue throughout their lives; the quality of the provision that we provide gives firm foundations for future physical, cognitive, emotional and social development. We inspire our pupils to achieve their full potential within our loving community of life-long learners.

At East Morton we understand that building secure relationships with children and their families at this early stage is key to understanding how we can get the most out of learning opportunities for each and every child in our setting. We are fully committed to taking the time to understand and follow children’s interests, alongside providing a rich curriculum that supports their learning, consolidates and deepens knowledge, skills and understanding – ensuring that children achieve their next steps. Our enabling environment and warm, skilful adult interactions support the children as they begin to link learning to their play and exploration. When children join our school, we invest time and energy into helping pupils set and reflect on their own goals by aiming high and developing a love for learning. This is delivered through a holistic curriculum which maximises opportunities for meaningful cross-curricular links and learning experiences, as well as promoting the unique child by offering extended periods of independent learning through play and sustained thinking following children’s interests and ideas. We value imagination and creativity and seek to create a sense of enjoyment, fascination and awe and wonder in learning through engaging indoor and outdoor provision. We aim to prepare our children to achieve and exceed the Early Learning Goals at the end of their foundation stage year, with particular focus on the prime areas of learning. We ensure that all children have made good or better progress from their individual starting points. Our ultimate aim is to prepare our children with the knowledge, skills and understanding needed for the next stage of their learning journey in KS1 and beyond.
