Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage

We are a warm and friendly team with a dedicated passion to create the best start for your child's education. We offer a positive learning environment, both indoor and outdoors, which stimulates and inspires independent and resilient learners.

School starts at 8.50am and we are available every morning and after school to discuss your child's learning and development. Please feel free to come and speak with us.


Thank you,

The EYFS Team.

The buzz of self-regulated activity was happening throughout the Foundation Stage with children playing collaboratively, working together independently in an environment which supported their  creative and critical thinking.  Their interests, which had been extended by adults, showed how child-led planning had inspired the children and given them ownership of their work. The level of involvement and creativity of the children’s thinking, play and talk was immediately evident. The impact of this on their confidence, self-esteem and belief in themselves as leaders of their own learning was evident in the way the children eagerly showed and talked about what they had been involved in.

Foundation is a very happy place with dedicated and hard working staff who really care for, know and understand their children; their needs and interests.

The staff ensure the children have fun and develop the skills for any challenge they will face. I can whole heartedly recommend the EYFS at Priory Lane and that the staff will provide the best start to any child's school life.
