Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage Page: FS2 Reception

"Every child deserves the best possible start in life and to be supported in reaching their full potential. A child's experience in the early years has a major impact on their future learning and experiences. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in it's own right. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up."
(Statutory Framework for the Early Years, DFE, 2014)

Early Years education at Red Oaks means an exciting and balanced curriculum that encourages exploration and independent learning. We always put the child at the centre of the learning, making learning enjoyable and accessible to all. Teachers respond to the children and plan accordingly. Therefore the planning is fluid and dynamic and responds to the child.

Every child is an individual and our child initiated, response based planning aims to provide them opportunities to develop their abilities. Please click on a year group picture to find out more.

Please click here to see our Proud Walls and a link to our assessment platform the Interactive Learning Diary. We also offer a range of curriculum enhancements please click on the following link to find out more.
