Our Curriculum is core part of our School Vision whereby we strive for excellence and children can be the best they can be.  The aim of the curriculum is to provide children with the skills and knowledge needed for the next part of their school journey (either with us or when they move to Secondary School).  


At Firs Farm our curriculum is carefully sequenced to ensure progression from the previous subject knowledge and/or skill to the next.  The curriculum has a spiral design so children revisit skills and knowledge with greater depth each time.  Children are given the opportunity to apply learning from one subject to another and to use experiences/skills gained to help problem solve across subjects. 


We are continually reviewing our Curriculum to ensure it is representative of our school community and meets the needs of all our learners. 


For further details on which each element of the curricula contains please visit the individual subject pages.  The overview of our curriculum is below. There is also a downloadable PDF and link to the Curriculum Policy. 



The Curriculum in the Early Years Foundation Stage

The Curriculum has been developed using the non-statutory guidance materials, Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). The curriculum is planned around 6 half-termly topics and the UNICEF Rights Respecting School agenda.

The topics covered are as follows:


Colour, light and festivals, Food,

People who help us, Animal stories

Fairy tales and superheroes.

Parents are informed termly about the content of the curriculum for that term.

The planned curriculum is developed through the needs and interests of the children in line with the overarching principles of the Statutory Framework of the EYFS seen below.


Framework and guidance can be found at

Overarching principles

Four guiding principles should shape practice in Early Years settings.


These are:


  • Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self- assured;
  • Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships;

Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers; and

  • Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. The framework covers the education and care of all children in Early Years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
