Mayfield Church Of England Primary School

Nurturing relationships, inspiring excellence, achieving potential.



Welcome to Reception at Mayfield Church of England Primary

In Reception we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. The curriculum is planned around our children's interests, each learning journey designed to inspire and excite our young learners! We work by observing and playing alongside the children to explore their ideas and interests. In this way our planning suits the needs of the individual children in our class. 

Within our curriculum there are 7 areas. These are subdivided into the Prime and Specific, these are outlined below.

The children work through these in age bands, each child makes progress at their own rate and we support and extend them to reach their full potential, in this way the child is at the centre of all we do. 

We also encourage children's Characteristics of Effective Learning. These are the key skills that children will develop to become confident and proactive learners. 

At the end of the year children are assessed against 17 Early Learning Goals, one for each of the 17 curriculum areas. 

The Early Learning Goals:
