At Cleeve Primary school, we follow the Statutory Framework for Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to provide our EYFS curriculum in Nursery (FS1) and Reception (FS2) Our ambitious, progressive curriculum teaches themes through play and exploration supported by outstanding adult-interaction across the 7 areas of learning. We use the Characteristics of Effective Teaching & Learning to plan for the ‘unique’ child and develop children’s next steps.
At the end of the academic year the EYFS profile will provide parents with a reliable assessment of each child’s attainment in relation to the 17 early learning goals. This information is also shared with staff in Year 1 to ensure a smooth transition.

The foundation stage consists of Foundation Stage 1 (Nursery) and Foundation Stage 2 (Reception)
The foundation stage makes a crucial contribution to a child’s early development and learning. We provide a rich variety of teaching and learning experiences that are appropriate to the needs of the child.
The children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which is divided into 3 prime and 4 specific areas.
* Personal, social and emotional development
* Communication and language
* Physical development
* Understanding of the world
* Art and design

The Government offers an additional 15 hours of free childcare for working parents. The additional 15 hours of free childcare is available for families where both parents are working (or the sole parent is working in a lone-parent family), and each parent works the equivalent of 16 hours a week at the national minimum or living wage, and earns less than £100,000 a year.
We are able to offer this at Cleeve on a term by term basis.
