Welcome to our

Early Years

Foundation Stage

"Play is the highest form of research" -  Albert Einstein

We aim for all pupils to leave our EYFS as confident, self-motivated, resilient and creative individuals who are ready to embrace their learning journey at Acacias Community Primary School. We endeavor to provide all pupils with the skills, knowledge and self confidence they need to become independent learners. 


'The EYFS is about how children learn, as well as what they learn. Children need opportunities to develop their own play and independent exploration. This is enjoyable and motivating.' - Development Matters 2021

Large portions of our timetables are dedicated to child initiated play, where the children are free to explore the vast range of open ended provision areas on offer. Our learning environments, both indoors and out, are designed to stimulate learning, inspire creativity and provoke curiosity. During free play, our well trained practitioners scaffold pupils' learning. We aim to enrich their experiences by extending pupils' knowledge, skills, understanding and vocabulary.


Adults in our EYFS unit are caring, approachable and enthusiastic. The children's wellbeing is at the heart of what we do. We strive to ensure our learning environment is a space where pupils feel safe, happy and confident.
