Welcome to Reception  

The Curriculum in Reception

The Reception classes and Nursery follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. The Early Years Foundation Stage is made up of seven areas of learning which are split into two categories.

Prime areas of learning:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development


Specific areas of learning:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design


The prime areas of learning are fundamental to support development in all other areas. Specific areas include essential skills and knowledge for children to participate fully in society. All areas are delivered through a balance of adult led and child initiated activities. In each area there are Early Learning Goals (ELGs) that define the expectations for most children to reach by the end of the EYFS.
