Curriculum at Everton Heath

Early Years Foundation Stage

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is mandatory for all schools and covers the development of children and their learning from birth to the end of the academic year in which a child has their fifth birthday.
There are four themes in the EYFS which express important principles underpinning effective practice in the care, development and learning of young children. The four themes are;

• A Unique Child
• Positive Relationships
• Enabling Environments
• Learning and Development

Our EYFS plans at Everton Heath Primary School outlines how we put the principles and commitments of the EYFS into practice in our setting and is used alongside policies and procedures that underpin statutory welfare requirements.
