Our Curriculum 

At Little Bollington CofE Primary school, we strive to offer children the very best start to their journey through education. Our Early Years setting follows the EYFS curriculum that the government sets for all early years providers (0-5 years) to make sure that, 'all children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe' (Department for Education).

“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.”

Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage.

It is through this that we have proudly developed a meaningful, interesting curriculum that not only engages and inspires our children but is carefully mapped to ensure that each childs development is accounted for. Preschool and Reception explore a "hands-on" play based curriculum, both indoors and outdoors, throughout the day. We ensure planning is flexible to explore the childrens interests and we listen to their ideas and staff are highly skilled in observing the children and recognising opportunities to support and extend children's ideas. Our curriculum links with the wider world and celebrates communities and cultures.

“Play is essential for children’s development, building their confidence as they learn to explore, relate to others, set their own goals and solve problems. Children learn by leading their own play, and by taking part in play which is guided by adults.”
Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage.



Reception children who join our setting in September will all complete the Reception Baseline Assessment. Please see guidence on this attached below. 

Throughout preschool and reception children will be continuously assessed to track and monitor their individual progress. On a daily basis, adults extend children’s learning by asking questions or making suggestion of resources to use. Each child will have one week per half term where they are a 'focused child'. This means the practitioners within the room will be closely monitoring their next steps using their expertise to record their progress onto a tracking sheet. This information and 'next steps' will be shared with parents. 

Reception children will also have two parents evenings - Autumn and spring followed by an end of year report in summer term. 

The headteacher, EYFS lead, SENCo and Mental Health lead meet once every term in pupil progress meetings to discuss all students and any concerns that they may have.
