Our ethos

We work to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) statutory framework. This sets standards to ensure children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children are ready for school and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

Every child’s experience in our newly developed EYFS setting will be a valuable one. We aim to inspire a love of learning and an interest in the world that will provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.

At Court Farm Primary School, we provide a nurturing environment for happy children, where everyone feels safe, respected and cared for. Our key principles are to provide an exciting and enabling environment, to support the development of each individual personality, to cherish friendships and to cultivate creativity and initiative through play and active learning.
