EYFS Recovery Statement

Time has been very strange especially for our younger learners and the excitement of starting school is a huge step in any child’s life. Covid has supported and promoted the importance of family  and the world around them in a positive way and will be used to support transition. We will ensure we are supporting children to familiarise themselves with the school environment so that they can start building relationships with key members of staff. Children will have missed opportunities in the last few terms of nursery to become fully school ready. The EYFS curriculum will provide opportunities for this in a variety of characteristic ways such as role-play activities, encouraging independence at lunch and snack times and encouraging children to develop independence when putting on their coats/shoes and with personal self-care skills. Circle time games will support personal and social and communication skills as part of a phased recovery in EYFS.
