Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)


EYFS Mission Statement

At Henry Cavendish Primary School we want our children to leave the Early Years Foundation Stage as happy, motivated and resilient learners who are ready for the next steps of their learning journey in Key Stage One.

We have high expectations for all our children and know their progress is linked to their emotional wellbeing; a child who is happy and settled at school will make the best progress with their learning.


EYFS – Our Approach

  • Our approach is underpinned by providing the children with developmentally appropriate opportunities for learning. 
  • This is reflected in the structure of the day, the ratio of adult-directed to child directed learning and, very importantly, considers the needs of the children as the year progresses and as they move between Nursery and Reception and Reception to Year One.


Please use the link below for an in-depth presentation about the EYFS at Henry Cavendish, how we plan and meet the requirements of the EYFS curriculum through a supported and engaging learning environment and how we assess your child’s progress as they develop and grow through the year.
