EYFS (ages 1-5)
Our commitment at BSB is to create and maintain a safe, happy and child-centred environment in which children are inspired to become purposeful, life-long learners.
In the Foundation Stage our aim is that upon leaving Early Years, BSB pupils have a strong sense of self, feel positive about their abilities as a learner, have formed constructive relationships and are confident communicators.
“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to fulfil their potential. A child’s experience in the early years has a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its’ own right, and it provides the foundation for children to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up. When parents choose to use early years services they want to know that provision will keep their children safe and help them to thrive. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the framework that provides that assurance.” Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (2008).
At BSB we follow the EYFS framework, which is statutory in the UK for all Ofsted registered settings. In doing this we are adopting a curriculum which entirely follows the British education system and provides children with the best possible start to their schooling by:
From the child’s perspective a curriculum such as this should be full of real-life, concrete experiences. Children will often be informally consulted about their learning environments and learning opportunities – we will always endeavour to follow their interests to ensure planned activities and themes are motivating for them. Pupils should feel happy, safe and secure at school and should have ownership of their classroom.
