“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.”

Reception Teaching Staff

At Holmer Academy we are committed to underpinning our provision with the four themes of the Early Years Foundation Stage in our Reception Classes.

  1. A Unique Child
  2. Positive Relationships
  3. Enabling Environments
  4. Learning and Development

In our Early Year Foundation Stage we seek to provide:

Provide a broad and balanced education for all pupils that’s coherently planned and sequenced towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge for skills and future learning and employment

To develop a partnership working between practitioners and with parents and/or carers

Enable pupils to develop knowledge, understand concepts and acquire skills, and be able to choose and apply these in relevant situations

Support pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development in order for them to know how to contribute positively to society

Promote the learning and development of our youngest children and ensure they are ready for Key Stage 1

Support pupils’ physical development and responsibility for their own health, and enable them to be active

Promote a positive attitude towards learning

Ensure equal access to learning for all pupils, with high expectations for every pupil and appropriate levels of challenge and support

Support pupils in developing their future aspirations

Equip pupils with the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life
