Important Information about the EYFS Curriculum

ELG for parents

From our long term progression document above we break the year down into smaller steps and link them directly to themes and core texts. Our curriculum was designed by Early Years staff, curriculum leaders and the Year 1 team to ensure a fluid transition between the Early Years and Year 1.

Staff refine and reflect upon Medium term plans frequently and will make changes to the documents as required. Please see below for the Medium Term Coverages for Reception 2023


Communication Overview 

Please see our Welcome to Reception presentation below.
