Early Years Foundation Stage
At St. Kentigern’s Catholic Primary School, we view parents as valued first educators and so we work mutually with parents, carers and families, to create a happy, safe and stimulating environment where all children are motivated to learn and grow in confidence and self-esteem. By maintaining high expectations of ourselves and each other, our children will be equipped to encounter opportunities and challenges with resilience and determination. We encourage a curiosity about the world and strive to ensure that our children contribute positively to it, both now and in the future.
Acorns and Nursery:
We provide an ambitious and inclusive curriculum that educates all children in the knowledge and skills to be curious, independent, resilient learners, whilst providing a warm and caring environment. Opportunities are maximised to develop the child as a whole, ensuring their unique gifts and talents are celebrated. The children ‘s spirituality is encouraged to flourish so that they know they are valued members of God’s family.
Reception and Nursery work closely with each other to ensure continuity, consistency, and progression throughout the Foundation Stage. Our Mission Statement, “We learn and pray in faith and love,” is at the heart of everything we do. We celebrate and welcome the differences within our school community. The children are provided with a wide range of opportunities to develop their interests, skills, and talents and to promote their understanding of the world and their place within it. We strive to ensure that all children reach the Early Learning Goals and beyond!
