Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage!

“In Early Years we have lots of fun; learning through play and getting messy is all part of the fun! Both in the classrooms and in our outdoor area we have a variety of areas of provision so that all the children can access different resources to develop their skills. Children’s interests drive curiosity and exploration, with the environment and provision being key for children to develop and progress their own ideas to help them become capable independent learners. We recognise that every child is an individual and unique and setting challenges and questioning provides children with wider learning opportunities. At Carlton we believe working together with families and the community is highly important to support children."

Miss Radley

EYFS Phase Leader


We use Tapestry in EYFS to share children's learning and to communicate with parents. Please ensure you are checking Tapestry weekly for all communication and pictures from the weeks learning. We look forward to seeing learning shared from home too to share in class with the children!
