Early Years Curriculum

At West Ashton Primary School our aim is for children to become independent learners who can think and “do” for themselves. We use a child-centred curriculum that is based on the child’s own starting point and use a mix of child-initiated activities and adult-led teaching to enable children to make the most of their education.

The reception class is now part of our EYFS unit which is made up of 3 year old nursery children and reception children.  This allows the children to access the complete early years curriculum, throughout their time at EYFS.

We cover the 7 key areas of learning;

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Throughout the year we use continuous assessment through observations and provision to track progress towards the early learning goals.
