Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)


At Cawston Grange Primary School, we believe that the Early Years Foundation Stage is crucial in securing solid foundations that children are going to continue to build upon through school and beyond. It is our intent that the children who enter our EYFS develop physically, verbally, cognitively and emotionally whilst embedding a positive and enthusiastic attitude to school and learning.


We believe that all children deserve to be valued as an individual and we are passionate in allowing all children to achieve their full, unique potential. With all of this in mind, we develop our EYFS curriculum throughout the year by taking each child's individual needs into consideration and celebrating diversity within our school community. We work in partnership with parents and carers to encourage independent, happy learners who thrive in school!


We aim for all Reception pupils to be:

  • Ready to learn: Children have a positive, confident attitude to learning.  They are both physically and emotionally ready to learn.
  • Resourceful: Children show initiative, are curious about their world and are prepared to use a variety of strategies/resources to learn.
  • Resilient: Children are prepared to persevere and stay involved in their learning, even when the process is challenging.
  • Kind: Children show respect and compassion for their peers, adults and learning environment at all times and they understand the importance of kindness.
