The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at Burrough Green

If you are currently exploring places for your child to start school in reception in September 2024, we would love to show you around our school. 

Please contact or ring 01638 507236 to arrange a visit.

We have a welcoming, dedicated Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Team at Burrough Green who are committed to providing the best possible learning environment to allow every child to flourish and grow as they start their learning journey. We work closely with our families to develop strong relationships, as it is our belief that, in order for children to learn, they need to be happy and feel safe. We use Tapestry, an online learning tool that allows us to communicate freely with our families, allowing them to feel fully involved in the development of their child.

Throughout the year we work towards the Early Learning Goals, with a strong emphasis on learning through exploration and play. Our classroom and outside area is well-resourced, giving children challenge as well as the opportunity to practice and develop key skills in a way that is appropriate for where each individual is on their learning journey.

We have a mixture of Early Years (reception) and Year 1 pupils in Malala Class. This enriches the experiences of both year groups – the reception children have role models to learn alongside and the Y1s develop confidence as they become experts. Currently, Malala Class has 15 members, making it a very small class, ensuring the best possible start for your child.

Our Y5/6 children are "buddies" to our EYFS children.

Transitioning into the EYFS at Burrough Green

Mrs Leadbeter, our Early Years Lead, visits children who are joining us in their current setting in the summer term before they start. The children are then invited to spend some time in Malala Class during July so that they can meet the rest of the team and begin to feel at home in the classroom.  

Please come and visit us - we would be proud to show you around our school
