Early Years Foundation Stage

Early Years Foundation Stage Vision

In Early Years at Southwold Primary School, we are committed to providing all children with the best start to their school life. We believe the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is crucial in securing firm foundations that children continue to build upon.

We provide opportunities, through an enabling environment, for children to develop and progress in their learning journey. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum of play-based activities alongside aspects of adult-directed teaching and learning opportunities.

The continuous provision is carefully planned to allow children the opportunity to apply their own learning with opportunities provided to follow their own interests.  We value the importance of outdoor learning and believe that it should provide children with opportunities to develop their thinking and problem-solving skills. We aim to replicate real-life learning experiences and provide practical, first-hand learning opportunities to enhance children’s knowledge and understanding of the world around them.

In EYFS we aim to provide high quality education for all of our children, laying strong foundations for their future learning and development ensuring that they develop physically, verbally, and emotionally. We pride ourselves on understanding our diverse community and generate a culture of respect for each other.
