National Curriculum Guidance

Welcome to Early Years! The document below is written for parents/carers and provides lots of useful information about what happens in "Early Years". If you have any questions just contact us and we will be happy to help.

The EYFS curriculum objectives that we have chosen to follow are outlined by “Development Matters” and children are expected to at least meet the Early Learning Goals by the end of reception, for more information go to this website - .


In 2020-21 we chose to be an “Early Years Early Adopter” school and follow the proposed EYFS framework that became mandatory in September 2021. This has given us the opportunity to both learn and to help shape the new framework.


In 2021 the government has introduced the “Reception Baseline Assessment”, we were a school that was originally selected to support the development of this assessment. For more information about the Reception Baseline Assessment please go to this website -
