Our progressive curriculum is mapped from the very earliest stages of development, roughly in line with expectations for a child aged between birth and six months, through to the age-related expectations for a year six pupil. These stages of learning are used to break down expectations into pupil focused steps, with a focus on vocabulary and skills development. Our aim is to prepare each child for the next stage of their learning.


Curriculum vocabulary for learners working within stages A to F. This subject falls under the heading of Knowledge and Understanding the World for our Early Years learners and children working within this stage.

Curriculum vocabulary for learners working within stages G to L.

Progressive Curriculum

Our progressive curriculum details the skills and knowledge taught at each stage.  Each setting plans learning opportunities from the curriculum grids in order to meet the needs of the pupils in their care. For example, pupils attending Early Years Assessment Centre will likely be working within stages A, B and C, whereas pupils entering Woodlands may be working at stages J, K or L. The document below outlines the learning at each stage.

Below are photos which demonstrate what learning may look like for your child. If you have any questions about what you see below, you should speak to the Teacher in Charge of your child's setting.
