Since September 2013 the Year R (Reception) children have been undertaking learning and activities from the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. This framework is split into:

  • The prime areas of learning: communication and language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development
  • The specific areas of learning: literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design
  • Characteristics of effective learning: playing and exploring, active learning and creating and thinking critically

The children in Year R, Year 1 and Year 2 currently follow the “Letters and Sounds” programme for Phonics. We also use a range of resources from “Read Write Inc” to support their practical learning within this programme.

For the teaching of RE (Religious Education), the school and the Governing Body have made the decision to follow the Hampshire Local Authority agreed “Living Difference Revised 2011” syllabus, which is in line with the vast majority of primary schools within Hampshire, and also “Understanding Christianity” which is a syllabus followed by most Church of England schools within Hampshire.
