Achieve, Believe, Succeed

Our EYFS includes our pre-school and reception children, from ages 3 to 5. We want to ensure that every young child in our EYFS has a happy, safe and secure start to their school journey.

About our class.
The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) applies to children from birth to the end of the reception year. Class 1 at Coads Green Primary School includes children in pre-school (from 3 years old), Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. While this is quite a large age range, this ensures a smooth transition between the different stages of a child’s first few years at school, and the children frequently learn from each other.  

Class 1 has a full time teacher (Miss Thorp), and two HLTAs (Mrs Abbott and Mrs Alford). 


For pre-school and Reception planning, we follow “Development Matters” as a guide. We also follow our own tailored skills progression curriculum to ensure every child has the opportunity to meet their expected outcomes. 


We welcome visits to Class 1, to see how our children enjoy working together and with the adults who help to facilitate their learning.
