Early Years Foundation Stage

EY Curriulum Intent 

At Crosslee Community Primary School our EYFS curriculum aims to provide opportunities for our children to develop as independent, confident, successful learners with high aspirations who know how to make a positive contribution to their community and wider society. Our goal is to ensure that all children are happy and engaged.

The curriculum in Early Years is designed to provide a language rich, broad and balanced education that meets the needs of all pupils. It facilitates them to gain the skills, knowledge and understanding, as they start out on their educational journey, supporting them to progress from their individual starting points and preparing them for the next stage of their education.

Through the seven areas of learning we provide topics that excite and engage children, building on own interests and developing their experiences of the world around them. We deliver our curriculum through a combination of adult-led, teacher taught sessions as well as a wealth of stimulating continuous provision opportunities.

Through the EYFS curriculum that we provide the children continually demonstrate their ability to;

  • Play and explore
  • Learning actively
  • Create and think critically


At Crosslee Community Primary School we understand and value the importance of working in partnership with our parents to enable our pupils to be happy, independent learners who thrive in school and reach their full potential.

We recognise every child as a unique individual and we celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. We hope that all children will be inspired and motivated to actively participate in the curriculum; experiencing enjoyment and transitioning into key stage one with the confidence to meet the challenges of the ever changing world.
