‘Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child's experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances’
We value that all children are unique and different individuals and so work alongside parents and others to meet their needs to help support every child to reach their full potential. With these intentions in mind, we are fully committed to the aims outlined in the EYFS as stated above.
At Roman Road Primary School our aims are to provide the highest quality care and play based education for all our children in the nursery and reception classes, thereby giving them a strong foundation for their future learning.
We view our children as autonomous learners and hold a strong belief that children learn best when they are given appropriate opportunities to have ownership over their own learning in a safe environment that allows responsibilities, errors, decisions and choices to be made. Children have a natural ability and a drive to want to play and it is through the power of play that children learn and develop many essential skills and knowledge. Our curriculum is very play based and we provide our children with many opportunities to play through-out the day. Through play, our children explore and develop learning experiences which help them make sense of their world.
