Seize Opportunity, Create Success

Reception (EYFS)

Welcome to Reception (EYFS)

 

At Sidegate we follow the statutory Early Years and Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework for pupils in the Reception Year. We aim to provide a safe, stimulating and welcoming environment where children learn through play and develop to their full potential. Through communication and interaction with parents, staff ensure that learning is personalised to each pupil. A  wide range of learning opportunities help pupils to work towards achieving the Framework’s Early Learning Goals.
