Welcome to Foundation Stage 2
What is it like to be a child in our setting?
The Early Years Consultant for Devon (2017) said:
"The learning environment of both classrooms, additional spaces and outside has become a seamless high quality space for teaching and learning"
"There is a plethora of opportunities for learning."
"There were opportunities to be imaginative and be curious."
"There is a positive and purposeful atmosphere which encourages independence."
"A rich and varied learning environment with a wealth of open-ended and prepared resources to provoke learning."
Ofsted (2017) said:
"A real ‘buzz for learning’ exists in the early years."
"Children were confident to make mistakes and demonstrate a real enthusiasm for learning."
"Children show an inquisitive nature in their work because of well-organised learning opportunities designed and planned by staff that encourage positive risk taking."
"The partnership between home and school is a strength."
"Children are well supported to develop their writing skills in readiness to start Year 1."
"Teaching assistants skilfully support children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities to participate effectively."
We are very proud of our Foundation Stage setting and work hard to provide irresistible learning experiences for all of our children.
