Foundation Stage (FS)

The Foundation (FS) Department at Al Salam Private School follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum.

Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfill their potential. The EYFS promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

Teachers consider needs, interests and stage of development of each child and use this information to plan a challenging and enjoyable experience for children in all of the areas of learning and development. The lessons are carefully planned keeping in view the learning objectives laid by the curriculum, children’s interests and capability levels. Each area of learning and development is implemented through planned, purposeful play and through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activity.

The EYFS seeks to provide:

quality and consistency in all early years settings, so that every child makes good progress and no child gets left behind;

a secure foundation through learning and development opportunities which are planned around the needs and interests of each individual child and are assessed and reviewed regularly;

partnership working between practitioners and with parents and/or carers;

equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice, ensuring that every child is included and supported.
