    Mantle of the Expert

  • We have a very exciting and enriching curriculum at Kings Road. From the first moment, Nursery children are encouraged to express themselves in a safe and warm environment. Phonics is fundamental and organised so that all Key Stage 1 children receive tailored and focused teaching. Reading is the key to children’s development in all subjects and is therefore fully embraced at all stages. We are particularly proud of our writing model, which is entitled The Royal Write.

  • We believe that every child is entitled to a high quality education where knowledge, skills and understanding are developed through personalised planning, teaching and real-life experiences. Children should be taught in a caring and safe environment and be encouraged to reach for the stars.


    At Kings Road we aim to provide a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum. We aim to enable the children to learn and develop skills, attitudes and understanding in the Prime and Specific areas of learning as outlined in the Statutory Framework for EYFS. The Prime areas are: Personal Social and Emotional, Communication and Language and Physical Development. The Specific areas are: Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design. Within these areas children will participate in a variety of activities both with and adult and independently. This will be supplemented by our pledge that every child in the EYFS will experience a wide range of high quality real-life experiences.

    EYFS Curriculum

    We believe that play, both indoors and outdoors, is the fundamental way in which young children learn. Play can be enjoyed and

    challenging. When playing, children behave in different ways. Sometimes their play will be boisterous, sometimes they will describe

    and discuss what they are doing and sometimes they will be quiet and reflective as they play. Through play, children will be developing across all the Prime and Specific areas of learning, working towards achieving Early Learning Goals and developing their Characteristics

    of Learning. Adults in the setting support play by planning and resourcing a stimulating environment, supporting

    children’s learning through planned play, extending and supporting children’s independent

    play and developing children’s language and communication in their play.

    The importance of play!

    For children starting in our Nursery, the primary focus will be on developing the Prime areas of Learning, as without these it is difficult for a child to be emotionally, physically and mentally ready to develop their specific skills. As the children settle and develop, more emphasis will be put upon continuing to develop the prime areas at the same time as developing the Specific areas. As children move up into Reception, the Prime areas do not become redundant, these skills still need to be maintained, supported and extended at an age appropriate level. However, the focus does begin to move to the specific areas which include Reading, Writing and Maths, but they are still taught through a play rich curriculum. This ensures we remain true to the ethos of the EYFS whilst ensuring our children are becoming ready for KS1.

    Progression through the EYFS

    Within EYFS we are keen to involve our parents throughout all aspects of our curriculum, we believe that when parents are engaged, children are able to achieve more in the long term.

    We provide an open door policy ensuring all parents are able to approach any member of staff, this also supports the development of strong home- school relationships. Within our learning we try to ensure parents can become involved as much as possible. This ranges from weekly home learning information, stay and plays, parent readers and parent workshops.
