EYFS 2016-2017

Early Years Foundation Stage 

Our classroom is a place where everyone is treated equally, encouraged and respected. We believe that all children should be able to achieve their full potential academically, socially and emotionally. We are committed to our classroom being a safe and inclusive place where learning is nurtured and encouraged in a happy, caring and fun environment. We all work for our classroom to be a happy place where good behaviour is expected and all children enjoy their educational journey. In EYFS we believe in nothing but the best!
