All schools in the Trust are now closed until further notice. Presently, we are able to provide supervision to children whose parents or carers' jobs are essential - in the fight against COVID-19 - and should only be used as a last resort.

Each of our schools is offering a very limited childcare service for a very small number of children, starting tomorrow. Schools have closed, they’re being used for children of key workers - who have no one else to support them as they work. https://t.co/IcKYkOjlXK

Plenty in this blog post for church leaders that resonates for others, such as school and trust leaders. “But we are facing weeks if not months of new reality, and we shall have many days where we have unexpected space to think, pray, read, re-imagine and discuss. Take it.”... https://t.co/4Al0qsyZrj

Early Years Foundation Stage

Learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception)

In planning and guiding children’s learning experiences, staff in our Nursery and Reception units reflect on the different ways that children learn and cater for these in their daily practice.

Three characteristics of effective learning in the early years are:

  1. Playing and exploring - children investigate and experience things, and ‘have a go’
     
  2. Active learning - children concentrate and keep on trying if they encounter difficulties, and enjoy achievements
     
  3. Creating and thinking critically - children have and develop their own ideas, make links between ideas, and develop strategies for doing things

Learning experiences for Nursery and Reception children are planned around seven Prime and Specific Areas of Learning and experience.  Early Learning Goals summarise the knowledge, skills and understanding that all young children should have gained by the end of the Reception year.

Playing and exploring with the willingness ‘to have a go’, alongside being an active learner engaging in ‘hands on’ experiences, develops each child’s ability to make links, share views and express ideas in a safe and supportive learning environment.

Early Years practice is developed in line with ‘best practice’ guidelines and supports the concept of continuous provision, free-flow, and a predominantly child-led learning environment both indoors and outdoors.  At the heart of this is the development of communication and language skills.
