Helping at Home
We are committed to providing a stimulating curriculum which is broad and balanced. We follow the guidance provided by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework for children in Nursery and Reception.
We implement the statutory programmes of study stipulated in the National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2. We use a wide range of teaching methods at Starks Field depending on the age of the children, where they are with their learning and how they can learn best.
Our staff are fully trained and qualified and they undergo training to keep them up to date with the latest ideas on teaching and learning. They are also available to talk to you at any time about how you can support your child's learning.
