WELCOME TO FOUNDATION STAGE!

Our Learning Ethos

In EYFS at Ottery St Mary Primary School, we strongly believe children learn best through self initiated play. This is when they are happy and engaged at the highest level. As a result of this, as well as providing high quality daily direct phonics and maths teaching, the children spend most of their day accessing their own learning. This is supported by the adults in the setting who offer scaffolding, high quality interactions and, when deemed appropriate additional support.

Our Learning Environment

We provide children with a high quality learning environment both indoors and outdoors. Resources are open ended allowing children to develop their imagination and problem solving skills. The provision in our setting remains the same over the year but is enhanced and developed based on the needs and interests of the children.
