Our EYFS

Curriculum

Our Early Years and Foundation Stage (EYFS) provision includes both our Pre-School and Reception Classes. Overseen by a qualified teacher, we deliver the EYFS curriculum; language, literacy, numeracy, communication, personal, social, creative and physical skills are developed through opportunities to explore and ‘do’ through activities such as dressing up, painting, singing, seeing what happens when you mix sand and water, getting on bikes and trikes, cooking, playing music, solving puzzles and exploring our environment.

Your child’s first experience of school should be all about excitement and adventure. Our children in Pre-School will make discoveries, develop their imagination and gain in confidence. They will build friendships and start to experience a joy of learning.

The Reception year (Foundation Stage) is particularly significant in building the foundations of learning and for a child’s continuing educational experience. The Early Years classroom has been specially set out to create a stimulating, warm and nurturing environment which incorporates all areas of the EYFS curriculum. Children develop into confident and interested students, who show a genuine love of learning.

The EYFS curriculum is tailored to cater for each individual child’s needs; ensuring that children are making continuous progress whilst maintaining confidence and a can-do attitude. It incorporates early literacy and numeracy skills, as well as play-based inquiry, which links social interaction and theme-based learning.

An open, friendly atmosphere and a close partnership with parents ensure children begin their educational experience feeling nurtured and supported through encouragement, reward and celebration. Parents are kept up to date regularly through daily contact at the door, Class Dojo (online communication platform), email, newsletters, parent/teacher meetings and written reports. Parents are invited to attend events such as workshops, assemblies, productions, Sports Day, coffees mornings and many more.

Our staff/pupil ratio means children are given close attention within a clear structure and high expectations, underpinned by detailed policies and procedures.

Our Key Stage 1

Curriculum

Key Stage 1 operates as a transition stage between Early Years (Pre-School and Reception) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6) when the children are beginning to develop greater independence in their learning.

Key Stage 1 classes follow a creative curriculum. This is a carefully planned, thematic approach to teaching and learning designed to support children’s natural curiosity and stimulate their creativity.

We concentrate on building very strong foundations in the core literacy and numeracy skills, meanwhile engaging and exciting children in the whole process of learning.

It is at this point we introduce subjects such as History, Geography, Computing, Science, RS (Religious Studies) into the curriculum and balanced with Art, Music, Performing Arts, Computing, Swimming, PE and PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic education) we hope to develop children’s inquisitive and creative sides.

Pupils flourish in the rigour of academic studies, but also thrive in the diversity of our enriched curriculum. Key staff have the expertise to support pupils who may need additional support, and a more personalised teaching approach is adopted, ensuring significant progress is made by all our pupils regardless of their starting point. Our Well-being programme includes an impressive range of activities, workshops, special days and projects, which keep teaching and learning current.

Our Key Stage 2

Curriculum

By the time children reach Key Stage 2, the ethos and values of the school are very well-established and provide the foundation for children to become confident contributors to the senior schools they go on to, as well as outstanding role models within the school and beyond.

At St George’s, we are ambitious on behalf of every one of our pupils as unique individuals, and we aim to support their development into well-rounded learners who are fully equipped with the flexibility, resilience and resourcefulness to embrace whatever lies ahead in the rapidly changing world. We have designed our curriculum to capture the fun, inquisitiveness and creativity that we believe should lie at the very core of teaching and learning.

During Years 3 to 6, we offer a broad and rich learning experience that is delivered through a dynamic, thematic curriculum with an international flavour. English and Maths form a daily core component, but we also launch into topics such as ‘Crime and Punishment’, ‘Industry and Innovation’, ‘Energy Savers’ and ‘Endangered Animals’. Science, Humanities, Art and Design Technology come to life through these lessons as the children explore, discover and create.

We are proud to combine the best of primary practice with highly experienced teaching. Music, Drama, Languages and Sport are all taught by subject specialists; these teachers are passionate about educating our young learners to the highest possible standards. Key staff have additional expertise to support pupils who may need additional support.

Underpinning every aspect of our curriculum is a focus on developing the skills necessary for learning: resilience, problem-solving, critical thinking, communication, teamwork, organisation and independence. We aim to ignite children’s imaginations while simultaneously equipping them with the skills they will need for wherever their life and learning will take them.
