Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)  


At St Patrick’s we aim is to give our children the best possible start to their school learning journey and we want them to develop a love of learning. In the EYFS, we want to give children a strong foundation to grow, explore and succeed as learners. We want the children to feel secure, safe and happy, in an environment where every individual is respected and valued. We have high aspirations for  our children and believe that every child has the right to achieve their full potential. 


We plan and deliver learning opportunities using the EYFS Framework. This covers the seven areas of learning and development: 

Prime Areas 

Personal, Social & Emotional Development

Communication and Language

Physical Development


Specific Areas



Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design
