Foundation Stage

The Foundation Stage at BSJ comprises FS1 and FS2; these are the years in which your child develops the skills necessary for school readiness.  We follow the Foundation Stage Curriculum for England.

During the Foundation Stage your child will work towards a set of Early Learning Goals (ELGs) of which there are 17.  These ELGs cover 7 areas of development; within these areas are 3 Prime areas and 4 Specific areas of development. The Prime areas are the Foundations on which we build the skills of learning and development.  They are Communication and Language, Physical development, and Personal, Social and Emotional development.  The Specific areas are the areas from which teaching and learning will be further developed. They are Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, and Expressive Arts and Design.
