EYFS 2021 - 2022
“When we succeed in giving every child the best start in their early years, we give them what they need today. We also set them up with every chance of success tomorrow.” -
Development Matters 2020
At Grove Street Primary School we embed the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, striving for all children to reach their full potential and master the Early Learning Goals and prepare for them for a smooth progression into the National Curriculum .
Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)
|Communication and Language (CL)
||Physical development (PD)|
|Literacy||Mathematics||Understanding the World||Expressive Art and Design|
We understand that children are individuals and develop and learn at different rates, we use the characteristics of effective teaching and learning to guide good practice when planning for learning opportunities.
|Characteristics of Effective Teaching and Learning|
|Playing and exploring||Active learning||Creating and thinking critically|
|- Children investigate and experience things and 'have a go'.||- Children concentrate and keep on trying if they
encounter difficulties, and enjoy achievements
|- Children have and develop their own
ideas, make links between ideas, and develop strategies for doing things
We are passionate in ensuring that teaching and learning takes place both indoors and outdoors. Children take the lead on their own learning and highly skilled staff are able to model, scaffold and extend learning opportunities.
Early Adopter School
We have been an Early Adopter school and have had the experience of working with the new curriculum before it became statutory this year (2021-22). We use Development Matters 2021 to support and guide our curriculum but most importantly recognise that our curriculum needs to be more ambitious than this and personalised to our children and their interests.
