The Early Years Foundation Stage is an important time in a child’s development and forms the basis for a child’s on-going learning and growth.


At Hester’s Way Primary School, we like to build strong, professional relationships with pupils, parents and carers, so that the children’s needs and different starting points are considered and nurtured, to ensure that they make the best progress.


Children develop quickly during the EYFS from birth to five years; at their own rates and in their own ways. Provision in the Foundation Stage enables children to develop their personalities, talents and abilities, as well as their learning. The EYFS Guidelines, on this page, provide an overview of the intent, implementation and impact, during Reception Class.


If you have any queries about “Starting in Reception Class” or the EYFS Curriculum, please contact the Reception teachers by emailing: or call the school office on 01242 525616.


Please find on this page details about what your child will be learning during this vital year at school.
