Early Years Foundation Stage

At St Jude's C of E Infant School, we deliver a curriculum based on the framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. This describes the seven areas of learning and development which “must be implemented through planned, purposeful play”. This framework covers children from 0-5 years, 

The framework also states that “Practitioners must respond to each child’s emerging needs and interests, guiding their development through warm, positive interaction.”

We have a fantastic team of adults who put this into practice every day.

In addition, the framework describes “Three characteristics of effective teaching and learning ….playing and exploring...active learning…. and creating and thinking critically.” These describe exactly the approach we take to learning in Reception at St Jude's C of E Infant School. Throughout the year, the children play, make friends, develop and learn. They have great fun,  exploring and creating, indoors and outdoors. They gain independence and confidence and their natural curiosity is encouraged at all times.
