Development matters

You can read about our curriculum development plans in our journal which we will be updating throughout the year.

Our EYFS Curriculum Journey  

Autumn Term | 1st Half

The first half-term is an important time in the Reception year. We focus on getting to know each child individually and building relationships between the staff and pupils, as well as developing friendships within the class.

We carry out the national Reception Baseline Assessments. You can download a parents guide to the assessments here:
