Welcome to our school - full of happy, hard-working children and teachers. We want every child to participate fully, respect other people, be independent and determined in achieving excellence.
Early childhood forms the foundation on which children build the rest of their lives. At Little Eaton School we aim to provide a creative curriculum that allows for many ‘I wonder’ moments as the children engage in many real-life opportunities within an immersive environment.
The children within our reception class learn through a range of play-based opportunities as well as adult-led and independent activities. Staff plan a wide range of exciting activities that promote our school’s core values of Participation, Responsibility, Independence, Determination, and Excellence (PRIDE). Where the outcome is a cohort of happy, independent, confident, and determined learners who are able to communicate well and have the ability to think critically and share their thoughts and ideas.
The children have independent access to a stimulating curriculum both indoors and outdoors on a daily basis. The outdoor environment includes access to a garden, a sandpit, a mud kitchen, and a climbing frame as well as space to explore the natural environment. This allows children to explore and gain new learning experiences whatever the weather.
We carefully plan our EYFS curriculum to meet the following aims:
