Welcome to our EYFS Curriculum Page

In Our Lady’s Early Years Foundation Stage, we aim for our children to be independent and curious learners who are safe and happy.

We strongly believe that all children should receive the very best educational experiences, allowing them to fulfil their unique potential and providing them with the essential skills and knowledge that they need for their future success.

We understand that our children come from a variety of backgrounds and our curriculum ensures that we build on this wide range of starting points so that  all children can progress regardless of how they have entered our setting. This curriculum, alongside our well-resourced environment, skilled staff and strong parental relationships ensure that we have high ambitions for each child.

This approach is supported through the implementation of the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage Learning and Development requirements and the Characteristics of Effective Learning. The EYFS learning and development requirement comprises of seven areas of learning and development and the educational programmes (see below)

Communication and Language

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Physical Development



Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design
