YR Expectations & Curriculum
Children entering Reception are taught values, behaviours and attitude to learning that we hope they carry with them in their journey at St Helen's. Our aim is to give your child the tools they need to be successful learners and we have high expectations of them as members of our school community.
The New Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum
As of September 2021 the new EYFS Early Learning Goals will become statutory. At St Helen's we will be adopting these Early Learning Goals in the 2020-2021 academic year. Whilst some of the learning outcomes may look different to previous years, the overall goal of 'school readiness' for Year 1 remains fundamental alongside a broad and diverse curriculum.
These new goals, along with the YR curriculum map can be found below.
