All are valued, all are loved

Our Curriculum this year

But the angels said to them,
“Do not be afraid, I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all people.”
Luke 2:10

The angels brought the Good News that God’s son had been born. Jesus teaches us that we should value and love one another. By our example, our children are nurtured and encouraged to be kind and compassionate, showing God’s love to those around them and enabling everyone to flourish.

Everyone is included in the St Edburg’s family, inspired to make a positive change and encouraged to interact with the community around us. 

All are valued, all are loved.

We are guided by the Characteristics of Effective Learning and children are encouraged to play and explore, to become creative and critical thinkers, and to be active learners.

There are seven areas of learning, and each area is divided into several different strands.  There are three prime areas of learning and four specific areas of learning. Whilst children in Nursery and Reception access all areas of learning, the prime areas of learning (Physical Development, Communication and Language, and Personal, Social and Emotional Development are the foundations of our Nursery curriculum. 

Learning in the EYFS is always vibrant and fun. Activities are open-ended and promote independence and reflection. Children work collaboratively on projects and build resilience and determination. Our curriculum affords children the opportunity to take risks and to build on mistakes. Our curriculum follows children’s interests and challenges and inspires each individual learner. We believe in the power of play, and as Albert Einstein once said, “Play is the highest form of research.”
