Early Years

The Early Years curriculum is designed to provide a broad and balanced high-quality early education that meets the needs of all pupils. We place great value on the development of children as individuals and we celebrate and welcome differences within our school community.


EYFS curriculum intent

At Silvertrees, it is our intent that the early years provides a safe nurturing environment to enable a positive start to school life. Children at Silvertrees are provided with the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to be strong, independent learners as they start their educational journey. We strive to offer a high-quality continuous provision both indoors and outdoors that motivates, inspires and challenges cognitive development. Our play based provision is enhanced by our knowledgeable practitioners to consolidate and extend children’s learning. Through the seven areas of learning, we aim to provide experiences that excite and engage children, building on their own interests and developing their experiences of the world around them. We work in partnership with parents and carers to encourage independent, happy learners who thrive in school and reach their full potential from their various starting points.
