Early Years Foundation Stage At St Nicholas

What does the EYFS look like at St Nicholas?

The EYFS curriculum is a play based, holistic curriculum that aims to prepare children to develop their basic PSHE, Literacy and Maths skills. There is a strong focus on learning school routine, communication and basic independence skills. Communication is a prime focus throughout the day and appropriate augmentative and alternative communication is used to support each pupil’s communication.

The EYFS curriculum is designed to follow children’s interests and motivators as well as provide opportunities for more structured activities. Here at St Nicholas School the curriculum is supported by a different Topic each half term. Our pupils are all unique individuals and we are incredibly proud of all they do and achieve on their journey with us and beyond.

The EYFS curriculum aims to prepare pupils for their school career and prioritises supporting pupils to follow routines, respond positively to high expectations and have the strategies to be able to adapt to a variety of situations.

All our EYFS staff are extremely passionate about our wonderful school and our EYFS curriculum. We give our all to ensuring all our pupils reach their potential.

Parent participation is actively encouraged in the EYFS curriculum and initial meetings with Parents before their children start with us, take place for every pupil. Visits to classes to share experiences during different topics assist with generalisation of skills.
