“A rich and stimulating environment…children are always engaged in purposeful activity.” 

Ofsted June 2018 

At Holsworthy C of E Primary School Early Years Foundation Stage Unit, our children are at the heart of what we do. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum routed in language and progress which is personalised and tailored to each unique child’s point of learning to provide them with the knowledge skills and understanding they need to be confident, inquisitive, curious, independent learners whilst fostering their fascinations and influence their wider thinking across all areas of the curriculum. 

Our dedicated and highly trained team strive to provide an environment that is happy, secure and stimulating, where risk taking and challenge is encouraged in a safe environment and incorporated into our Early Years Curriculum through our Christian values of love, kindness, respect, responsibility and forgiveness.  

Our children are nurtured to become confident, resilient and reflective learners with a natural instinct to explore, which develops a readiness to succeed and a life-long love of learning. We believe parental involvement is crucial to enable us to provide a unique curriculum for a child and work in close partnership to enable experiences and learning to be shared.

Holsworthy C of E Primary can offer your child a happy, secure, well-ordered and stimulating environment, where children develop as independent individuals through interaction with nurturing adults and other children. We foster opportunities for children to manage their own risks in a controlled environment, where they will learn vital life skills. 

Our broad and balanced curriculum and high quality teaching and learning ensures children develop positive attitudes towards learning, self-motivation, curiosity, confidence, resilience and responsibility. 

We provide children with first hand learning experiences, rooted in purposeful play in which they become actively engaged, expressing their thoughts, ideas and feelings. 

We develop the whole child: socially, spiritually, emotionally, physically, intellectually and aesthetically where Respect, Love, Kindness and Forgiveness is at the heart of our Christian values.
