Phase 1

Phase 1 (Kiddiwinkles, Nursery & Reception) – Phase Leader – Mrs Oliver

In Phase 1 at Grangetown Primary we believe the core principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage are to develop the unique child, provide care and support in a safe environment and ensure that every child’s full potential is reached. We also believe that young children learn best through first-hand experiences in contexts that are meaningful and familiar to them.

We strive to develop positive relationships to ensure that our children feel secure. We aim to provide a rich and varied learning environment that allows all children to discover the world around them and provides opportunities for challenge whilst remaining safe. We believe that children require opportunities to develop independence and self-confidence in an environment where they feel valued, respected and cared for. Clear rules help each child feel safe, whilst high but realistic expectations encourage each child to strive to achieve their best. All children develop at different rates and learn in different ways. We understand that well planned experiences in all areas of learning and development are essential, with purposeful play underpinning the delivery of Early Years education. A high-quality Early Years education lays the foundations for children, with a focus on developing the whole child and to ensure ‘school readiness’. The EYFS at Grangetown Primary provides children with a broad range of learning opportunities with the aim to embed firm foundations in the knowledge and skills needed for good future progress.

We aim to develop children’s cultural capital so that they are able to engage with society and understand the importance of being a good UK and global citizen. A key priority of the EYFS team is to maintain a determined approach to ensure that children learn to read fluently at an age-appropriate level.
