Intent

At St Thomas Aquinas RC Primary School, we are committed to providing our children with the best possible start to their school life. We believe the experiences that a child has in the first two years at our school is vital in developing skills, attitudes to learning and values that build on the early experiences in pre school settings.

Impact

The impact of the EYFS curriculum is reflected when well rounded, happy, resilient and confident children transition into Year 1 with the foundations firmly in place ready to continue their learning journey.
