Early Years Foundation Stage

Welcome to Reception 2023-24 

Starting school is a big milestone in our lives not just for a child but their whole family. At The Vaynor we aim to make this a fun and exciting time as we know how important it is to continue the learning journey that you as parents have already begun with your child.

Every child deserves to:

  • enjoy and achieve!
  • be healthy
  • stay safe
  • make a positive contribution
  • achieve economic well-being

As a team we work hard to plan new and exciting activities that will enable each child to access all the areas of learning and development; looking carefully at the skills the children need to learn, then planning alongside the children to find out what they would like to learn next and what topics interest them.

We use a range of strategies to support learning including whole class teaching, small group activities and one-to-one intervention. We believe children become successful learners when implementing their knowledge during their learning through play.

Learning through play gives us the opportunity to play alongside, model and observe the children to develop and support what they need as individual learners. We work in partnership with parents and love to celebrate those special moments that make you proud of your child. 

Please stay and take a look around the gallery and other areas of this site.
