St Amand's Catholic Primary School - Early Years Foundation Stage


Active Learning – Sticky Faces Day Nursery


Our Vision for Foundation Stage

At Whingate we know all of our children are unique. During their time in Foundation, we want our children to be happy and show a curiosity for learning and exploring, persisting when they are faced with challenges and be resilient to bounce back. When learning we want the children to show high levels of fascination, enjoy solving problems and learn from their mistakes as well as moving their ideas forward. 


The Early Years Framework


The EYFS framework sets the standards to make sure that children aged from birth to 5 learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. The framework is changing from September 2021 and we will be working from the revised Development Matters document which is attached below.
