EYFS Curriculum

At Stockton Heath Primary we believe that the reception year is vital in laying the foundations for children’s future learning. We want children to develop physically, verbally, cognitively and emotionally while also becoming confident, independent, resilient learners who are enthusiastic about their own learning and keen to improve.

Staff begin each year by looking at the individual needs of the children and take into account their different starting points, this enables staff to decide how best to take the learning of each child forward, ensuring they achieve their full potential.


The EYFS curriculum has seven main areas:

Prime areas:

Personal, Social and Emotional

Communication and Language

Physical Development


Specific areas:



Understanding the World

Expressive Arts


The curriculum is broad and balanced and takes into account diversity. The children take part in shared sessions, guided activities and individual work alongside a combination of adult led activities, adult initiated challenges and a wide variety of continuous provision across all areas. At the heart of all that we do are the characteristics of learning: playing and exploring, active learning and thinking critically.

The learning environment is adapted regularly to meet and challenge the needs of the children and to stimulate their learning. The learning environment has a variety of resources for the children to access independently. We believe that the children should have ownership of their environment and reflect what they are learning and celebrate what they have achieved.

The adults in the setting have high expectations for all children and support their learning by providing support, challenge and to take pride in their achievements.
