At St Paul’s, the EYFS curriculum is designed to encourage independent, inquisitive and happy learners. We recognise children’s prior learning and various starting points, and create a holistic curriculum that maximises cross-curricular links and builds strong foundations for their future.


Every child is recognised as a unique individual, and we acknowledge and promote children’s interests to provide them with the opportunities to follow their imagination and creativity. We invest time into helping children to recognise their personal goals, which allow them to reflect and aim high. We celebrate the differences in our school family, and always strive to promote a love for learning.


We recognise that children have a thirst for new experiences and knowledge, and should be provided with opportunities to engage their inquisitive minds. Therefore, we provide authentic and language rich continuous indoor and outdoor provision, that follow children’s interests, to support learners in investigating and developing their skills. We work in close partnership with parents and carers throughout the year to support their learning and to encourage children to reach their full potential. We also aim to support the transition from EYFS to KS1 and provide children with the skills and attitude they need to succeed throughout their education.
