Early Years Foundation Stage

What is the Early Years Foundation Stage?

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5yrs.

Here at Ordsall Primary School our EYFS is Phase 1 of our school. Children in Phase 1 are aged 3 to 5 years. In Phase 1 we have a part time (15hrs) and a full time (30hrs) nursery for children aged 3-4 years and we have three reception classes for children aged 4-5 years.

The two nursery classes are known as FS1, short for Foundation Stage 1. Each of the nursery classes have a class name and are named after influential artists. The part time nursery/15 hrs FS1 is called Kandinsky Class and the full time nursery/30hrs FS1 is called Klee Class.

The three reception classes known as FS2, short for Foundation Stage 2, are called Hockney, Renoir and Morris Classes.
