Early Years Foundation Stage at Luston and Shobdon

EYFS Lead: Georgina Morgan

 We create a safe and happy environment with motivating and enjoyable learning experiences that enable children to become confident and independent. We value the individual child and work alongside parents/carers and others to meet their needs and help every child to reach their full potential. We plan an exciting and challenging curriculum based on our observation of children’s needs, interests and stages of development across the seven areas of learning to enable the children to achieve and exceed the early learning goals. Children and families meet school staff before children before they join Reception, allowing children to make relationships and feel secure in their new environment. Staff work in partnership with parents, passing information about learning progress between home and school through face-to-face conversations, on-line ‘Tapestry’ or 'Seesaw' learning journeys, reading diaries and via the website.
