Foundation Stage

At St George’s we believe that…

A high-quality Early Years education lays the foundations for children, with a focus on developing the whole child and to ensure ‘school readiness’.

The EYFS provides children with a broad range of learning opportunities with the aim to embed firm foundations in the knowledge and skills needed for good future progress.

At St George’s our provision offers the necessary balance of teacher led input and child initiated learning. Children are immersed in thematic learning based on an interleaving curriculum where new knowledge is taught, learned, remembered, revisited and applied.

We create a nurturing, stimulating environment in the school indoor and outdoor learning areas for the children to develop physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally. Our children feel included, secure and valued.

At St George’s we believe that language development is vital for all children. We have high aspirations and support them to ‘be’ in their learning. Children develop good comprehension of the words they are using and are able to use them in context and accurately as part of their real learning.
