Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)



Our Curriculum is a broad and balanced, knowledge-rich Early Years curriculum. Our carefully planned EYFS curriculum lays the foundations for learning according to the National Curriculum from year 1 to year 6.

Our EYFS Aston All Saints planned curriculum ensures the consolidation of the four main principles:

The content of our EYFS curriculum is delivered through a range of broad and balanced, knowledge-rich projects that children love. Text driven and rich in knowledge, our curriculum projects help us to deliver all the necessary early years learning needed to be the most ready they can for national curriculum content. We follow our curriculum plan for maximum sequencing and connectivity. This unique progression from Early Years to Year 6 aims to promote the acquisition of ambitious knowledge, high-level literacy, technical vocabulary and the characteristics of learning, to ensure children are prepared for National Curriculum subject disciplines.  

Children in EYFS have a balance of adult and child led play and learning activities to ensure learning takes place both indoors and out. The ultimate goal being that children know more, remember more and do more each day.
