Early Years Foundation Stage
Welcome to Kingshurst Early Years Foundation Stage
At Kingshurst in our Early Years Foundation stage, it is
our intent to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that addresses the children’s social, emotional, physical, moral, spiritual and cultural development.
Learning is fun and we strongly believe in play, first-hand learning and valuing the importance of the outdoor environment to develop and support children’s thinking and problem-solving skills. We provide children with a safe and stimulating environment where children flourish.
We know the importance of practical learning experiences and We strive to equip children with a love of learning and a natural curiosity.
Every child is unique and should be treated so allowing them the opportunity to develop and learn in a safe and nurturing environment where play and learning is combined. 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.
We are committed to giving our children the best possible start to their school life, teaching them skills that ensure their well-being now and success in the future. We plan transition activities so children transfer between year groups smoothly and confidently. Every child is included and supported through equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice.
Our school core values Respect, Aspiration and Resilience thread through our practice alongside our Characteristics of Learning characters to support and encourage internal motivation and independence.
