Curriculum Map

At Rokesly Infant and Nursery School we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum in Reception and Nursery classes, and the National Curriculum in all a subject areas in Key Stage 1 classes.

We regularly review our curriculum to ensure that National Curriculum subjects are effectively covered. We work to ensure topics are creative and engaging and our teaching reflects the diversity of our community and the interests of our children.

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum Outline

Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences before the age of five have a major impact on their future life chances. At Rokesly we recognize that every child deserves the best possible start in life and we provide the rich learning environment, opportunities and support that enables them to fulfil their potential.
