EYFS Curriculum Information

At Overfields Primary, we recognise the importance of giving our children the best possible start to their education and place great value on the development of our children as individuals. We strive for each individual to achieve their full, unique potential.  We believe in creating a strong partnership with parents and carers, warm and positive relationships between staff and children and in establishing consistent routines across EYFS. 

In Reception, your child will follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. This sets the standards for the learning, development, and care of your child. There are seven areas of learning and development in the EYFS curriculum. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive, to ensure children are ready for their next stage in their school journey.  These three areas, the prime areas, are:

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

We also support children in four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The specific areas are:

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