Aims & Objectives

Making new friends in Reception.

In the Early Years Foundation Stage we aim to…

  • Provide a diverse and engaging curriculum, led by the children’s questions, ideas and personal interests.
  • Thoroughly support children’s development throughout the 7 areas and learning and beyond.
  • Value each unique child and their strengths, needs and goals, enabling them to become confident, resilient and independent learners.
  • Create strong parental links and positive relationships between home and school.
  • Encourage and support children to become happy, healthy, well-rounded pupils who will go on to become life-long learners throughout their time at The Old School Henstead and beyond.
