Early Years Foundation Stage

Welcome to Early Years Foundation Stage 

Welcome to Barton Clough’s Early Years Foundation Stage. We are two classes Nursery and Reception. Nursery join us in the morning for their free 15 hours and Reception stay all day.

The children at Barton Clough have the best possible start to their education with high-quality enriching activities to enable their learning through a play-based framework.

We firmly believe that by children at this early age accessing an enabling environment outside they can accelerate their understanding of the world around them, making links through nature; creativity and language.

In Reception it is also important that the children are prepared ready for Year 1 so we take part in daily high-quality phonics lessons and maths activities so that they have the understanding needed for KS1.
