Welcome to the EYFS Curriculum Page.



At Priestsic Primary and Nursery School, we provide our pupils with an Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum that gives them the building bricks for their education and embeds the knowledge and the skills they will require to be ready for school and develop a love of learning. Our curriculum provides children with first hand experiences and practical opportunities to explore, find out more, develop their natural curiosity and become highly engaged in their learning. The curriculum supports children to use their imagination and creativity to develop their thinking through finding their own ways to solve problems and individual approaches to activities.


Children learn through our inviting, safe, calm and stimulating learning environment where they have opportunities to learn through play by initiating their own ideas with the continuous provision indoors and outdoors and through adult support, scaffolding and modelling. We support all pupils through developing strong relationships with them and equipping them with the skills they need to interact with their peers and adults.


Our curriculum is driven by raising aspiration for all, celebrating diversity, improving vocabulary and promoting health and well-being. 


Our school values provide a basis for developing key personal skills necessary for a successful learning journey now and in the future - self-belief, independence, kindness, responsibility, respect and resilience.




Here is the EYFS Curriculum Rationale, Intent and Implementation.

Characteristics of Effective Learning 


At Priestsic Primary and Nursery School, we not only focus on what we want the children to know and be able to do, but also the how. We want children to know about how to learn and the language around this. We promote the Characteristics of Effective Learning and support the children with recognising this in their play.


Playing and Exploring - Engagement

Active Learning - Motivation

Creating and Thinking Critically - Thinking
