The Early Years Framework

Children develop quickly in the early years, and Early Years Practitioners aim to do all they can to help children have the best possible start in life.

Bowes Pre-School enables children to develop their personalities, talents and abilities irrespective of ethnicity, culture or religion, home language, family background, learning difficulties, disabilities or gender and this is highly reflected within the provision through Quality Teaching with practitioners dedicated to providing the best care for children.

OFSTED have said that

The quality of teaching is exemplary.  Staff use their expertise to provide children with an educational programme that is extremely challenging, exciting and worthy of disseminating to others.  As a result children make rapid progress in their learning and development.”

OFSTED also said that

"Staff are extremely warm, caring and nuturing and are dedicated to providing the best care for children.  Consequently, children are very settled, happy and grow in confidence."

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework (EYFS) for all children and plan for the learning intentions that lead towards the early learning goals. The EYFS provides guidelines about children’s development and what it is that children should be expected to achieve by the end of their reception year in school.

 

 

The childrens learning experiences are recorded in big floorbooks and individual learning journals both of which are available for parents to look at any time.

We ensurethere are activities, experiences and opportunities to help children progress through the Learning Intentions set out in the EYFS. This will enable your child to be well on their way to achieving the expected goals, therefore giving them the best possible chance within school.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is divided into seven main areas of learning, which are:


Prime Specific Areas
  • Personal, Social & Emotional
  • Literacy
  • Physical Development
  • Mathematics
  • Communication & Language
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts & Design

All children are entitled to the best start in life. Nurturing in an early years environment can enhance the children’s future educational experience. Bowes Pre-School, in conjunction with the government, is committed to ensure that the five outcomes for well-being are met in relation to the education and welfare of children.

Bowes Pre-School delivers the Every Child Matters outcomes to ensure that the provision for each child is personalised to meet the needs of the individual child.

 

The Pre-School often arranges outings and visits places of interest. This includes visits within the local community as well as trips further afield. You will always be told of any trips in good time and will be asked to sign a consent form if you wish your child to go, parents are also invited to attend all trips. We also welcome many varied visitors into Pre-School.

 

 

 

Our recent Outstanding OFSTED report stated that:

  • The quality of teaching is exemplary.  Staff use their expertise to provide children with an educational programme that is extremely challenging, exciting and worthy of disseminating to others.  As a result, children make rapid progress in their learning and development.

  • Procedures to protect children from harm are exceptionally robust and safeguarding is at the heart of all practice.  Staff demonstrate an extensive knowledge of their responsibilities with regards to recognising safeguarding concerns and dealing appropriately with them.

  • The whole staff team, including committee members, have a strong determination to continually develop the provision.  Staff demonstrate great enthusiasm and passion for their role.  They closely monitor their practice and take highly-effective staps to ensure positive outcomes for children.

  • Partnerships with parents and other professionals are extremely strong.  This results in a very successful two-way flow of information to support and extend children's learning and ensures they get the help and support they need to make the best progress possible.
