A warm welcome to Reception at St. Paul’s Catholic Primary School.
At St. Paul’s we proudly follow the guidance of Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). The EYFS principles taken from Development Matters are found within four themes, and the commitments within each theme indicate how they should be put into practice.
The four themes are outlined below:
1. A Unique Child – “every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.”
2. Positive Relationships – “children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.”
3. Enabling Environments – “children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers.”
4. Learning and Development – “children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early year’s provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.”
