Lapford Partnership Foundation Stage Unit

'Today was good.
Today was fun.
Tomorrow is another one.’ 
Dr Seuss

At Lapford Partnership Foundation Stage Unit, children of preschool age (Fledglings) and children of school reception age (Robins) learn and play together sharing our well-resourced indoor and outdoor areas. The caring and experienced team nurture a strength of character in all our pupils and provide a range of opportunities, which enable all children to enjoy learning and achieve their potential; preparing them for Year 1 and onwards.

We offer a stimulating and relevant curriculum following the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). We make children’s learning exciting, fun, meaningful and challenging. We insist on high standards, which we are then proud to share. 

Our work starts with an exciting experience or challenge to capture the children’s interest and generate enthusiasm. We respond to children’s interests to ensure learning is engaging and relevant to them, and they develop the skills needed to become independent learners.  A high quality outcome brings together the children’s learning in a meaningful way, and is shared with parents and the community. We want the learning experience for all of our pupils to be memorable so that they are ready for the next step in their journey.

Our partnership between home and school is very important to us, and it is our aim to work closely with parents and carers to ensure the best outcome for all of the children in the Lapford Community Foundation Stage Unit.
