At Villa Real School our pupils in Early Years follow an individualised bespoke curriculum which covers Personal, Social, and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
The Early Years curriculum is play and experience based. We provide a safe and secure learning environment where independence is encouraged and good relationships are key between staff, pupils and the family/carers.
We have well developed indoor and outdoor play facilities. All of the pupils in Early years have access to the Hydrotherapy Pool, Multi-Sensory Room and Soft Play where appropriate. We also offer Forest Schools and Outdoor Education which enables our pupils to be learners beyond the classroom and develop an inquisitive approach in varied real life situations.
The staff working in the Early Years are committed to the progress of the pupil as an individual and to share progress with parents/carers through the use of Learning Journals.
Our staff have a breadth of expertise and knowledge and provide a wide range of opportunities for your child to learn and develop. Read Write Inc and BLAST are utilised to teach phonics across EYFS.
Some of our Early Years classes are mixed with pupils from Key Stage One. These pupils follow Pathway 1 and 2 in order to motivate and inspire pupils ensuring they have a rich and enhanced learning experience whilst at Villa Real.
