EYFS policy - draft version

At the Ridgeway Primary, The Early Years Foundation Stage consists of Nursery and Reception.

In early years (Nursery and Reception) we have designed a curriculum based on the needs of the children in our community.  We follow the statutory requirements of the EYFS Framework and use the documents Development Matters and Birth to Five Matters to guide our planning.

You can find more information on our curriculum within our class pages of the school website but we have added our overviews below.
