New Starters

Welcome to Methley Primary Foundation Stage

We are incredibly proud of our Foundation Stage here at Methley.  We tailor our curriculum to the needs of our children. We adopt a flexible approach that is driven by the characteristics of effective learning. These closely link with our whole school values; motivation, perseverance, collaboration, communication and respect (Our Methley Magic 5!)

Our Early Years curriculum has a huge emphasis on personal, social and emotional development, physical development and communication, literacy and language (Prime areas). We tailor our curriculum to meet the needs of our children, through a careful balance of child led and adult directed activities so that our children are fit and ready for their school journey. Through our curriculum we aim to give our children an awareness of the wider world. It is carefully designed, implemented and regularly reviewed.

In Early Years, children embark on a journey of discovery and exploration to promote a sense of wonder about the world in which they live. We create a happy and caring environment where all children feel valued and safe and where they will have the opportunity to develop positive relationships with all the adults and children within our setting.
