The Early Years Foundation Stage is the curriculum provided for children aged 0-5. This is the curriculum followed in Nursery and Reception at Moston Lane Primary School. It is broken down into seven areas of learning for the children, prime and specific areas of learning.

The prime areas of learning are Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development.

The specific areas of learning are Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

In Nursery and Reception, all activities and sessions will be based around these areas of learning and opportunities will be provided for the children in the continuous provision for them to develop their skills in each area. Children will be exposed to learning opportunities indoors and outdoors and through a range of play based and taught sessions!

When children start in Nursery, they will be assessed in all these areas so the staff know which areas each child needs supporting in, to ensure they are being provided with the best learning opportunities.

At the end of Reception children will be given a grade in all of the areas to say whether they are emerging, expected or exceeding in each area.

If you wish to know anything about your child’s development, then please feel free to ask a member of staff and they will discuss your child’s profile with you.

Also, please see the link below to access a parent/carer friendly version of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, so you can see how your child is progressing in each area in relation to their age.
