Foundation Stage

FS1 & FS2

  • Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is specifically designed to meet the needs of this age group (3.6 – 5.6 years) to prepare them for entry to Key Stage 1.
  • Learning in this Stage is fun and curriculum objectives are achieved through purposeful, well-planned play and practical activities.
  • English Language is central and children are encouraged to talk through their activities to extend vocabulary and explore ideas.
  • They work towards the Early Learning Goals and are assessed using the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) Assessment Profile which records their progress and development throughout the Stage 1 and 2.
  • Teachers and Co-teachers ensure that every child has the opportunity to succeed academically and socially.
  • Learning in FS2 is fun and curriculum objectives are achieved through purposeful, well-planned play, practical activities and more formal lessons.
  • Early Numeracy skills are developed through cross-curricular topics and this is done by practical hands-on experience.
  • Pupils learn to read and write confidently.
  • Specialist teachers teach Arabic, Ethics, PE, and Music.
  • FS2 classes are based in large, colourful classrooms with an experienced teacher and a full-time TAs.
  • All students have access to the play areas which challenge and develop their gross motor skills.
  • Self-esteem and confidence are nurtured so that children become motivated and active learners.
  • Through the introduction of the ‘Golden Rules’ a caring community is created where pupils learn to care for themselves, others and the school environment.
