Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

In St Philip's C.E. Primary School Reception Class, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework.  The government requires all Early Years settings to follow this statutory framework.
The Early Years Foundation Stage acknowledges that children learn best through first hand experiences, play and by following their own interests.  At St Philip's  we think it is important that children are encouraged to be independent in their own learning.  The Early Years Foundation Stage is divided into 7 areas of learning and will include activities led by adults as well as independent and play-based activities carried out by the children themselves. Within this Early Years Curriculum Section of the website you will find out more about the 7 areas of learning within the Early Years Foundation Stage.
