Vision for Early Years Foundation Stage at Holy Family Catholic Primary School
Children are born with a natural desire to explore and learn, we support them in this through creating a superb stimulating and enabling environment, both physical and emotional. Through planning, resourcing and organising various provocations and experiences we strive to create moments of magic and wonder.
Adults in our setting are passionate and positive practitioners building the most valuable relationships with the children and their carers, forming essential bonds with families at the start of their journey through school.
The children will experience a broad and varied curriculum, which inspires them and enables them to develop the capacity and love for learning, as well as providing them with a secure basis on which to build their confidence, manage their feelings and form relationships. Emphasis is placed on the importance of first-hand experiences and exploration in enabling children to learn about the world around them appropriate to their needs, interests and stages of development.
Parents and carers are actively involved in their child’s journey and they are invited and encouraged to be active participants in the provision.
Child-led learning in our setting allows children to thrive whilst making accelerated progress towards end of key stage outcomes. Each child’s progress is carefully observed, managed and enhanced by adults who engage and interact with them to support them to achieve outstanding outcomes.
