Early Years Foundation Stage

Early Years Philosophy

At Southgate Primary School we believe the child is at the centre of learning and they learn best when they feel safe, are motivated and are having fun. We work in partnership to ensure all children are supported to be able to reach their full potential.  We achieve this by believing every child, family and member of staff matters. We need to consistently work together to tailor education to meet the child’s individual needs. 

Our Aims

We provide an environment which is welcoming, friendly, safe and exciting for your child to learn in. Children are encouraged to make friends, be confident, independent and investigative of their surroundings, enabling them to reach their full potential regardless of race, culture, ability, gender or religion. We promote a love of learning and a positive attitude towards themselves and others. We work together to value everyone’s contributions and ideas to improve children’s learning experience. We feel it is important to see education as a learning experience where you continually reflect, adapt and improve practise to meet the child’s individual needs.

The Early Years Foundation stage 2017

Play underpins all development and learning for young children. Most children play spontaneously, although some may need adult support, and it is through play that they develop intellectually, creatively, physically, socially and emotionally.

Practises Guidance For the Early Years Foundation Stage DfES Publications 2007

There are seven areas of learning and development that make up the EYFS;


Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language Development
Physical Development


Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
