At Wickersley Partnership Trust we understand that getting the Early Years curriculum right for our youngest children is the single most important factor in ensuring the best possible start to school life.

The Early Years is special. Our settings strive to provide a curriculum which enables all children to explore a wide range of opportunities and feel part of a school family. The Curriculum is based on the four overarching principles of the Early Years
Foundation Stage:

  • A Unique Child. Every child is a unique child who is constantly learning and can be
    resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
  • Positive Relationships. Children learn to be strong and independent through positive
  • Enabling environments. Children learn well in enabling environments in which their
    experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership
    between practitioners and parents/ carers.
  • Learning and Development. Children learn and develop in different ways and at
    different rates.

Children are exposed to rich and stimulating learning environments from the start. Best quality provision enables all learners to experience a wide range of unique learning opportunities including Atelier, Block play, Small World and Role Play on a daily basis. Environments are print-rich and organised, with opportunities for mark-making in all areas of learning.
