Early Adopter School

We have started this school year with an exciting change for our 'Early Years Foundation Stage'. The government is preparing to release a new document of 'Curriculum Guidance' for the 'Early Years Foundation Stage' in September 2021. Our school has opted in to be an ‘Early adopter’ of this new guidance and will be piloting the 'New Early Learning Goals'.
