Foundation Stage

Welcome to the Foundation Stage Curriculum page.  Below, you will find links to all the information on Foundation Stage you need to see how our children learn at school.


At Gravel Hill Primary, we greatly value the importance of the early years foundation stage (EYFS) in providing a secure foundation for future learning and development. 

We work in conjunction with the relevant DfE guidance and legislation to ensure that each child has a happy and positive start to their school life in which they can build a foundation for a love of learning.

We ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. We promote teaching and learning to ensure children’s readiness for the next stage of their education and give children a broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

We seek to provide:

  • Quality and consistency, so that every child makes good progress and no child gets left behind.
  • A secure foundation through learning and development opportunities which are planned around the needs and interests of each child and are assessed and reviewed regularly.
  • Partnership working between practitioners and parents.
  • Equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice, ensuring that every child is included and supported.
