Vision and Ethos of the Early Years Foundation Stage

at St Luke's CE


Through our Early Years Foundation Stage we intend to provide children with the best possible start to their school life, providing the foundations upon which their education can be built to enable them to fulfil their potential. 


Our Aims:

  • To provide opportunities through high quality interactions to develop communication and language of the pupils.
  • To provide a wide variety of learning opportunities through specific tailored and planned provision.
  • To ensure all children make excellent progress in their learning and reach their full potential, ensuring they are ready for the next stage of their education.
  • To ensure the environment provides safe, secure, caring and stimulating opportunities for our pupils to learn. 


The Curriculum

Our EYFS curriculum has been thoughtfully designed to be specific to the needs of our children, providing them with a wide variety of opportunities and experiences to learn through high quality provision and play. The curriculum has been split into half termly topics to engage children, building upon prior knowledge, skills and experiences they may have had outside of school and exposing them to new. The scope for learning within these topics is wide and adaptable, enabling children the opportunity to achieve and exceed expectations in all areas of the EYFS curriculum whilst preparing them, and equipping them with necessary knowledge and understanding for the next phase of their educational journey.

  • Through our Christian school and ethos, we all aim to believe in ourselves, each other, our teachers, leaders and parents. With reflection and prayer, we trust in God that our prayers will be heard. We know that every child is a child of Jesus, treating everyone with respect and dignity that they deserve.

    Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
    Matthew 7:7


  • We aim to build our pupils’ and teachers’ confidence, delight in their teaching & learning and discipline in seeking wisdom; gaining the truth, knowledge, understanding and skills they will need in their everyday lives. We offer a broad and inspiring curriculum that nurtures emotional intelligence, creativity and remembering of important knowledge. We teach and learn collaboratively leading to our pupils developing the life skills of learning.

    For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;
    Proverbs 2:6


  • We aim to be the best we can be. Whilst nurturing our pupils’ and staff, we encourage and drive them to aspire to achieve their hopes and dreams. We are honest in the fact that this will take hard work, perseverance and resilience.

    For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
    Jeremiah 29:11


  • Above all we aim to show compassion to ourselves and each other. By developing strong relationships and friendships we develop a true understanding of each other.

    ‘Love thy neighbour…’
    Luke 10:28


  • We are a family. We show compassion for all members of our community irrespective of gender, ethnicity, religion or sexuality. We strive to be ‘courageous advocates’ for our local, national and global community.

    There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.
    Galatians 3:28
