Marton-cum-Grafton Primary School

Early Years




At Marton-cum-Grafton Primary School, we intend all children to benefit from our progressive, structured implementation of the 2021 EYFS curriculum. This will prepare our pupils for a successful, balanced progression through school.  



 To successfully deliver all curriculum areas being a mix of focused activities, invitations to play and in the moment planning.  To monitor pupil achievement and progress and use assessment to support planning for future learning.  


Teaching and Learning  

All of our children access and enjoy continuous provision through each day as we play and learn together. Our skilled and caring team support, encourage and guide children through an array of learning opportunities. Child initiated playing and learning is encouraged and extended through considered interactions and questioning to develop the confidence, knowledge and understanding of the children in our care.

Our Early Years children follow the seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. We join in with whole school themes. In addition to this, children also enjoy sharing their interests and much of our teaching and learning is drawn from these moments so that children find their learning as engaging and relevant as possible.




Children are settled and happy in school and make good, or better, progress throughout their time in Early Years.
