Welcome to the EYFS section of Christ the King School's website.


EYFS Lead: Mr David Delaney


In the Early Years Foundation Stage, we aim to create a place where children can explore, learn, be active, meet friends, be safe and be adventurous. Research shows that children learn best through structured play, with skilled adults to talk to, think with and learn from.  


Here, at Christ the King School, we value each child as an individual and provide a balance of child initiated and adult led activities both indoors and outdoors as we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum..


This consists of the three Prime Areas of:


Personal and Social Development

Communication and Language

Physical Development


and the four Specific Areas of:




Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design


We also plan for and encourage the Characteristics of Effective Learning which are:


Playing and Exploring

Active Learning

Creating and Thinking Critically


If you need further information about the curriculum we offer here, please do not hesitate to contact one of our Early Years team.

Welcome Meeting - Curriculum and Information


Each September we hold a meeting for parents/carers about the curriculum, how they can support and other general information for their child's key stage.
