Early Years Curriculum
Our curriculum is linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework; Educational programmes which must involve activities and experiences for children, as set out under each of the areas of learning; Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the world and Expressive Arts and Design.
Our curriculum intention and implementation provide the skills, knowledge and experiences young children need to achieve the Early Learning Goals at the end of their Early Years Foundation Stage.
At Kingshurst Primary School we provide a broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum which addresses the children’s social, emotional, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual and cultural development.
We provide children with a safe and stimulating environment where children flourish. We are committed to giving our children the best possible start to their school life, teaching them skills which ensure their well-being now and success in the future.
We pride ourselves on listening to children and those who care for them, using this information to personalise each child’s learning. Developing positive partnerships with parents and/or carers and other practitioners linked to supporting children in our Early Years.
Learning is fun and we strongly believe in a balance of play and more formal teaching. We value the importance of the outdoor environment to develop children’s thinking and problem solving skills through the characteristics of effective learning.
Every child is included and supported through equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice. We carefully plan transition activities tailored to children’s individual needs so every child can transfer between year groups smoothly and confidently.
