Our EYFS 'EPIC' Curriculum in Action

Early Years Foundation Stage (FS2) Curriculum

Specific aims of EYFS

  • To give each child a happy, positive and fun start to their school life in which they can establish solid foundations on which to expand and foster a deep love of learning;
  • To offer each child a wide range of new and exciting experiences and give them the opportunity to consolidate, explore and test them out along with their own, individual experiences;
  • To enable each child, through encouragement and high expectations, to develop, to the full, socially, physically, intellectually and emotionally.
  • To offer a structure for learning that has a range of starting points and unlimited opportunity for development;
  • To encourage children to develop independence within a loving, secure and friendly atmosphere;
  • To support children in building relationships through the development of social skills such as cooperation and sharing; 
  • To help each child to recognise their own strengths and achievements through experiencing success and developing the confidence to work towards personal goals.
