Early Years

All children aged 3 and 4 must be able to access statutory nursery placements in Early Years provision.

The Local Authority decides if Beacon Hill is a suitable nursery placement for your child.
Children come for a 1 year placement with us in our Assessment nursery and will follow the Early Years Curriculum 

We will support the child and their family through the process of joint assessments and 1st meetings with the Multi Disciplinary Team to write their EHCP 

Pupils in EYFS, who are engaged in subject specific learning, access the EYFS curriculum, consisting of 7 areas of learning incorporating the 17 strands:

• 3 Prime Areas of Learning: Communication and Language; Physical Development; Personal, Social and Emotional Development

• 4 Specific Areas of Learning: Literacy, Mathematics; Understanding the World; Expressive Art and Design
Those pupils not yet engaged in subject specific learning access the informal curriculum in 4 areas of learning.

Pupils still have the opportunities to participate in the seven areas of learning alongside their peers, but they are only assessed in their 4 areas of learning.
