Our Early Years Curriculum

Two key documents have been used to support the development of our entire Early Years curriculum:

Development Matters

Our curriculum has been evolving over the past couple of years to ensure we provide the foundations for our whole school curriculum. 

 Here is an example from our Mathematics Overview of how we have been evolving our curriculum. We have incorporated how the Reception-aged children will develop as a 'Mathematician'; identifying the key skills, knowledge and vocabulary that they will develop at key points in the year.
