Hopes & Dreams

Welcome to our Foundation Stage


Welcome parents and carers,


In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at St. Patrick's C of E Primary Academy our children are happy.  They are excited and motivated to learn through rich and challenging learning experiences, opportunities to explore and take risks, and first hand experiences. 

We have high ambitions for all our children and plan experiences according to their stage of development so all can thrive and develop to the best of their ability.  We aim for children to be well-rounded individuals who are independent, resilient, and confident in themselves and with others.

Please find below further useful information about our Foundation Stage.
