Welcome to the Foundation Stage Curriculum page. Below, you will find links to all the information on Foundation Stage you need to see how our children learn at school.
At Hanbury Primary School, we are always keen to be at the forefront of any changes in education and are therefore excited to become an ‘early adopter’ school before the statutory implementation in September 2021.
The reforms bring about some exciting changes and if you have had a child who has been in Foundation Stage in recent years things may look a little different. However, our philosophy of early year’s education remains the same with play and wellbeing at the heart of everything we do.
In the final term of the year, a profile will be completed for your child. This provides parents and carers, practitioners and teachers with a well-rounded picture of a child’s knowledge, understanding and abilities, their attainment against expected levels, and their readiness for year 1. Throughout their year in Reception, the children will be observed and assessed through their play in order to gain insights and make reasonable judgements against the early learning goals. We will use the terms ‘emerging’ or ‘expected’ to describe our judgements.
