At St. Raphael’s we follow the statutory EYFS Framework;
This framework exists to support all professionals working in the EYFS to help your child, and was developed with a number of early years experts and parents. In 2012 the framework was revised to make it clearer and easier to use, with more focus on the things that matter most. This new framework also has a greater emphasis on your role in helping your child develop. The framework has been revised again with changes to the statutory guidance coming in to effect in September 2014.
In the ‘Children>Class Pages’ tab on the website, you will find the Nursery and Reception pages which break down the children’s learning into a curriculum map overview, along with a termly curriculum descriptor.
