The Early Years policy in this school reflects the value and importance of early years education, both during and beyond the foundation stage. It provides a framework for staff which gives guidance on practice, and outlines procedures for planning, teaching and learning, monitoring and evaluating the curriculum. The policy contributes towards raising educational standards within the school and ensures that the needs of the youngest children are met within the context of whole school policies, curriculum planning, agreed teaching approaches and organisational structures. The Early Years curriculum is being developed in accordance with DfE Early Years Foundation Stage which provides a statutory framework for provision from September 2012 and identifies provision for 0 to 5’s as a statutory key stage which precedes Key Stage 1 where children continue their early years.
