Foundation Stage

In the Foundation Stage at Mulgrave School we aim to provide our children with the best start in life. Working alongside other agencies, we support children by engaging with their parents, carers, extended family and the wider community. Through play, in a safe, caring environment, all our children are encouraged to become creative, confident, independent, lifelong learners.

In the Nursery and Reception classes we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS), which is especially suited to the needs of young children. There are seven areas of learning and development, which are all inter-connected.  The following three prime areas are particularly important for children’s capacity to learn and helping them build good relationships with others.

 

Prime Areas

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Laguage

 

Specific Areas

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
