 Early Years Foundation Stage


At King’s Meadow Academy we value the importance of Early Years Education as the beginning of a child’s learning journey throughout school. Our Early Years Foundation Stage is currently made up of a 45 place Reception intake which is split into two classes and from September 2022 we will be reopening our Nursery provision, providing a 26 place nursery in the mornings and an opportunity to offer 30 hours if you are eligible.


Our EYFS has recently been accredited with Elklan’s Communication Friendly Setting Status.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. This has seven areas of learning: The three prime areas are Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Physical Development. There are four specific areas of learning: Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.


The prime areas form the building blocks for learning and underpin all other areas.


Our curriculum is taught through topics which have been carefully chosen to engage and follow young children’s interests. We provide high quality experiences that are engaging, motivating and relevant to our learners. These are based on an excellent knowledge of how children learn, their personal needs and interests as well as the curriculum.


We want to work alongside parents as their child embarks on their school journey. The children who do best in school are the ones who have parents who are interested and supportive of their child’s learning. There are many ways that you can be involved and it is something we highly encourage. We offer parent workshops where you can learn about the curriculum and how you can help at home.
