Welcome to F2!
In F2 we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework which focusses on seven areas of learning. Each area of the EYFS curriculum has an Early Learning Goal, which is the standard that a child is expected to achieve by the end of their Reception year.
Prime areas of learning
Specific areas of learning
We use these areas of learning to underpin our broad and balanced curriculum offer. Communication and language lies at the heart of our Early Years curriculum.
Reception is filled with exciting and enjoyable learning opportunities; we aim to inspire our children and equip them with a love of learning. We value the importance of play and how crucial it is to a child’s development. Our staff plan a wide range of learning opportunities, use interesting provocations within the environment and plan for exciting enrichment activities to ensure that children are motivated and deeply engaged in their learning. We make use of the indoor and outdoor environments all year round.
Our team listen to and observe our children closely to identify and follow each child’s interests. By doing this, we recognise and take the opportunity to extend our children’s interests and learning further, by facilitating key teaching opportunities and planning for our children’s next steps. Each day consists of a balance of child initiated and adult led activities. We work closely with our parents and carers to make sure that each child is happy, safe and confident.

We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Services to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” cookies. Other cookies enable us and the third parties we work with to track and target the interests of visitors to our Services, and we refer to these as “advertising” or “analytical” cookies. For example, the embedding of YouTube and Vimeo videos, as added by individual schools, will require “advertising” cookies to be enabled in order to successfully play them. Schools that, for example, opt to track visitor data using Google Analytics will require “analytical” cookies to be enabled in order to do so.

We also enable schools to employ cookies and similar tracking technologies in connection with their use of our Services in order to allow them to track visitors to and interactions with their school website.
Our Services allows schools to embed code which may potentially contain cookies. Please note embedded content, if displayed on one of our websites, has been added by the school and not by eSchools. The embedded content added by the school may require additional cookies or tracking technologies to be enabled in order to function.
