Foundation Stage test

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage 0-5 curriculum, which supports learning through play, encouraging children to develop communication skills, imagination and a willingness to explore their environment.

Early Years Foundation Stage staff work with parents to provide an environment rich in sign language. We have a weekly parents’ group, weekly drop-in mornings and home visits that give families access to Deaf adults and BSL from early on. Children require access to models of high level BSL as a fluent first language; this supports the development of confidence and independent learning. They also need access to models of English to become bilingual, which our Early Years Foundation Stage staff can provide.
