Infant Department - Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1


Throughout the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children are grouped in needs led classes rather than by age which provides the opportunity to meet individual needs through appropriate resources, environments and staffing.

We aim to provide environments which promote positive relationships and a positive attitude to learning. Supported and built on with planned adult support and timely interventions.

We work on the principles of the Foundation Stage curriculum but also deliver elements of the Key Stage 1 curriculum as appropriate to each individual.  


There are prime and specific areas in the Foundation Stage which are as follows:

These are delivered through a topic based approach which allows for a balance of teacher led activities and play (child initiated) activities. 


Play is important; it provides a safe, secure environment for young children to experiment with new ideas and skills. Your child will be

making new discoveries everyday without even knowing it whether this is with or without support.
