Curriculum Statement of Intent

EYFS at Bentinck Primary & Nursery School

Our Curriculum Intent;


Our EYFS curriculum is designed to be inclusive and meet the needs of all our pupils, who come to us from a variety of heritage backgrounds, at whatever stage of development they are at. We believe that every child should be recognised as a unique individual and we celebrate and welcome differences within our school community.

We work hard to develop and foster children’s behaviours for learning in order that they become curious and confident learners; continually building on and developing their existing skills and knowledge.

Listening, concentrating and speaking are crucial areas of development for each and every child in order for them to learn successfully.

We provide children with a variety of first hand experiences, placing a strong emphasis on their acquisition of early phonics, maths, literacy and oracy skills.

Our aim is to provide a learning environment where children feel safe and secure and have fun in the process of learning, we want to ignite a real passion for new knowledge.

Our bespoke curriculum is designed to nurture children to be enthusiastic and independent learners; ready to access their next stage of education.
