A copy of the document is also in the schools General Advisor and Inspector's boxes which are kept in the Head Teacher's office. Extra copies are available from the Foundation Stage staff.

The Curriculum for the Foundation Stage should underpin all future learning by supporting, fostering, promoting and developing children's: We endeavour to provide a well planned and resourced curriculum to take the children's learning forward and to provide opportunities for each child to succeed in an atmosphere of care and of feeling valued. The monitoring of each child's progress throughout the Foundation Stage is essential to ensure that they are making progress and that particular difficulties in any of the areas of learning, whatever the cause, are identified.
