Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
We are delighted to welcome you to Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at Bracken Edge Primary.
Our EYFS comprises of a 26 place Nursery and two Reception classes. An amazing and dedicated team work collaboratively with parents and carers to provide the highest standard of education for our youngest learners.
We aim to ensure that every pupil experiences a first class education, which enables them to become a successful learner, confident individual and responsible citizen.
Children are motivated and inspired through a curriculum which is based on learning challenges, planned in response to the needs and interests of individuals. Every child has a chance to shine as they are given opportunities to develop new interests and skills we hope they will continue to pursue throughout life. With a balance of challenge and support, children are actively involved in a range of memorable learning experiences which promote creativity, independence and enjoyment.
We place a strong emphasis on children’s social and emotional development so that children will gain the confidence and skills necessary for them to become resilient and successful individuals, well-equipped for the challenges of life.
It is very important to us that every child is valued as an individual and that their unique qualities are recognised. We take frequent opportunities to celebrate positive attitudes and efforts as they strive for success in every aspect of school life.
