“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. 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.”


Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage Setting the standards for learning, development and care for children from birth to five DFE 2017.


Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage here at St John’s.

We aim to:-

  • Provide a high-quality Early Years education that is bespoke to the individual needs and starting points of our children so that they have a secure foundation for the next part of their education.

  • Create a safe and nurturing environment that will allow our children to develop their confidence to become independent learners as well as build positive relationships with adults and peers. 

  • Promote a language-rich curriculum through high-quality back and forth interactions, purposeful texts, songs and rhymes, as well as the exposure to new vocabulary.

  • Provide a range of experiences, resources and outdoor learning opportunities that will engage and motivate our children, enabling them to build upon their prior learning and to progress in all areas of the curriculum.

  • Work in partnership with parents and communicate effectively with them, ensuring that all children can children achieve their full potential in all areas of the curriculum.
