'Believe, Excite, Succeed, Together' 

 Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

At Welbourn Church of England Primary School, we create a bespoke curriculum based on the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile. This is based on 3 prime areas and 4 specific areas. 


Characteristics of effective learning in EYFS

Our Early Years provision is based on the 3 characteristics of Effective learning.


Playing and exploring: - Children investigate and experience things, and ‘have a go’. Children who actively participate in their own play develop a larger store of information and experiences to draw on which positively supports their learning

Active learning: - Children concentrate and keep on trying if they encounter difficulties. They are proud of their own achievements. For children to develop into self-regulating, lifelong learners they are required to take ownership, accept challenges and learn persistence.

Creating and thinking critically: - Children develop their own ideas and make links between these ideas. They think flexibly and rationally, drawing on previous experiences which help them to solve problems and reach conclusions. 


Principles of EYFS

The Birth to 5 matters states the overarching principles, which we use at Welbourn CE Primary School.
