Welford and Wickham CE (VA) Primary School

‘Where the children come first’


Subject lead: Mrs Crosse


Areas covered: Early Years Foundation Stage


In EYFS our intent is to inspire a love of learning and to ignite a spark of curiosity within each child. We believe that our first experiences of school should be happy and positive, enabling us to develop a lifelong love of learning. We want children to experience a practical, playful approach to learning, based on their needs and interests.  All the learning experiences we plan for the children should allow them to utilise and develop the key skills of playing and learning, active learning and thinking critically. Throughout their time in EYFS, the children develop a sense of belonging to our school community, ready to transition to year 1 the following academic year.  They will have the confidence and skills to make decisions and self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
