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.

Independent maths activities to try at home

Whilst We Can't Hug-A lovely video explaining how we can show love whilst social distancing.

Hedgehog and Tortoise want to give each other a great big hug, but they're not allowed to touch. This is a great video to show those children coming back to school to help prepare them for the social changes that are happen .

Everybody Worries-Written and illustrated by Jon Burgerman.

In this bright and friendly picture book, children learn that it's okay to worry about corona virus. Fun rhyming couplets keep the tone gentle and supportive, and you will find plenty of ideas for dealing with corona virus in a positive way.
