EYFS at Tanworth



To deliver the content of the Early Years Foundation Stage statutory framework, giving children a secure foundation and enabling them to 'live life in all its fullness'. 



Learning takes place through a balance of child initiated play and adult led learning, including: 

  • The direct teaching of reading, writing and maths everyday
  • Daily opportunities for children to practise and consolidate their growing knowledge through high quality provision that promotes child- initiated learning



For our pupils to become: 

  • Unique individuals who form positive relationships with adults and peers 
  • Independent, curious learners who explore and ask meaningful questions 
  • Confident learners who are ready for the next stage in their learning journey

There are 4 key principles that underpin our practice in the Reception Class.


A Unique Child

We recognise that all children are different. We identify and celebrate their strengths and support their areas for development.


Positive Relationships

Our pupils interact well with each other and with the adults in the school. We encourage parents to be involved with their child’s education.


Enabling Environments

Our indoor and outdoor areas encourage exploration, investigation, and independent learning. Our displays and resources are well maintained and reflect current learning.


Learning and Development

Pupils achieve well and make good progress from their starting points. Learning is playful, practical, and purposeful and builds upon prior attainment. Our children enjoy coming to school.
