Early Years Curriculum

Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum intent  

We want our youngest learners at Bishop’s Primary to settle happily into their school life and develop curious and enquiring minds as they begin their learning journey.

Our curriculum is planned to prioritise developing language skills whilst the children are in our 2 Year old provision so that they become confident communicators; leaving the Early Years with a love of language that supports them in becoming enthusiastic learners. Developing a love of reading is at the heart of our curriculum. Listening to stories and sharing books encourages our children to start a lifelong interest in reading.

Our Early Years curriculum helps children to recognise the value of friendships and encourages them to build positive relationships built on truth and trust; encouraging parents to be partners in learning.

We want our children to learn in exciting environments, both indoors and out, that will excite and motivate them to be enthusiastic learners and problem solvers. We intend that the curriculum we deliver, helps children to learn about the immediate world around them and to recognise the positive contribution they can make.

Our curriculum intent for Bishop’s Primary Early Years is that all children have the opportunity to access an exciting Early Years’ experience where they will be able to “Let their Light Shine”.
