Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop and grow quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its 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.

At Stirchley Primary School we want all children to develop their personalities, talents, learning and abilities irrespective of ethnicity, culture or religion, home language, family background, learning difficulties, disabilities or gender.

As part of the Early Years Foundation Stage we use the Characteristics of Effective Learning to find out how children learn, alongside what they are taught.

 The Characteristics of Effective Learning include:

- Playing and Exploring

- Active Learning

- Creating and Thinking Critically

At Stirchley Primary School we have made these terms child friendly and use The Achievosaurs to share the Characteristics of Effective Learning with the children and help them to develop the skills they can use throughout their lives.
