At Mount Carmel Primary School, the children in our Early Years Foundation Stage are taught to love learning and care for one another in a nurturing and exciting environment. We endeavour to create memories that will last a lifetime.

We follow the statutory guidance for the EYFS and complete EYFS Baseline assessments, as well as the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile at the end of the reception year. The Foundation Stage Curriculum is organised into seven areas of learning:


Communication and Language

Physical Development

Personal, Social and Emotional Development




Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design

The teaching of these areas of learning is practical and playful with support and challenge from adults in class sessions, small group sessions and working with individuals. There is a combination of adult-led, teacher taught sessions as well as a wealth of stimulating continuous provision opportunities, both indoors and outdoors. Children in our Early Years Foundation Stage are given the opportunity to think creatively alongside other children as well as on their own. They communicate with others as they investigate and solve problems. Our skilled Early Years staff plan engaging and ambitious topics which give the children the chance to learn in a creative, independent way. We work closely together to ensure that each child’s time in the EYFS is exciting, engaging and memorable.

Please see below for our Nursery and Reception Long Term planning and curriculum topic maps.
