Neatishead School Primary Curriculum & Information


Early Years

Members of staff are observing the children through play based activities both child and adult led. The children’s development is monitored using the Early Year Foundation Stage which covers from birth to the age of 5.

There are seven areas, these are:


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

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

When a child starts with us we create a learning journey to show their development and progression either using a paper based folder or using an online system called Tapestry. The aim is that when a child reaches the end of reception that they will have met the Early Learning Goals.

Please go here to find out more information about the Early Years Foundation Stage.
