Early Years Foundation Stage

At Overton St Helen’s School we aim to provide the highest quality care and education for all our children which will give them a strong foundation for their future. We aim to ensure that all our children develop into independent and lifelong learners.

“ When we succeed in giving every child the best start in their early years, we give them what they need today. We also set them up with every chance of success tomorrow” – Development Matters.

Our Early Years Foundation Stage provision and practice is based on observation of the children’s needs, interests and stages of development. Learning and development in Overton St Helen’s School are planned to reflect these interests and individual circumstances in order to provide every child with a stimulating, challenging and enjoyable experience.
