The school follows the Government strategies for Mathematics and Literacy and each class spends at least an hour each day on each of these subjects.

The Foundation Stage curriculum begins when the child first starts school. In Reception they focus on particular areas of learning for children aged 4-5 Years. They start with the following areas of learning:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Literacy and Mathematics are gradually introduced to the children ready for their transition to Year 1.
