King Edward Primary School Excitement + Determination = Success


The Revised Early Years Foundation Stage was introduced in September 2012.


Early years learning concentrates on 7 areas split between prime and specific areas of learning.


The prime areas of learning are:

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional development


The specific areas of learning are:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design


The ways in which children engage with other people and their environment – playing and exploring, active learning, and creating and thinking critically – underpin learning and development across all areas and support children to remain effective and motivated learners. We make the learning in F2 enjoyable and challenging through carefully planned exploratory activities.


Your child's development in these areas is recorded into what is known as an 'Early Years Foundation Stage Profile'. This goes with your child through Nursery and Reception and when complete is passed onto their Year 1 teacher.
