Holy Trinity CofE Primary School






In our small family primary school, the intent of our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) provision is to provide a rich, stimulating, and inclusive learning environment that nurtures the holistic development of every child. Our intent is underpinned by a deep understanding of the unique needs and interests of each child, ensuring that they receive a personalised and tailored educational experience. We are committed to fostering a love for learning, promoting independence, and building strong foundations for future success in both academic and personal growth.

Our curriculum is carefully designed to reflect the seven areas of learning and development outlined in the EYFS framework, with a strong emphasis on child-led exploration, play-based learning, and a balance between adult-led activities and child-initiated experiences. We value the importance of promoting positive relationships, creating a safe and secure environment, and celebrating the diverse backgrounds and experiences of our children and families.

The implementation of our EYFS provision is characterised by high-quality teaching, effective use of resources, and meaningful partnerships with parents and carers. At the heart of our practice is the belief that children learn best through hands-on experiences, meaningful interactions, and purposeful play. Our skilled and knowledgeable staff members are adept at observing, assessing, and planning for individual children's progress, ensuring that learning is scaffolded effectively and that each child is challenged and supported appropriately.

We place a strong emphasis on continuous professional development, ensuring that our staff are up-to-date with the latest pedagogical approaches, research-based strategies, and best practices in early years education. Our learning environment is carefully organised to promote independent exploration, creativity, and critical thinking, with resources that are accessible, engaging, and inviting for children to explore and investigate.

Strategies to Improve Reading at Home

Reading at home plays a crucial role in a child's development of literacy skills. As a parent, it's important to establish effective strategies to support your child's reading journey. Below are practical suggestions, ideas, and strategies to help enhance reading at home.


Establish a Routine

Setting a consistent reading routine can help develop a habit of reading. Allocate a specific time each day for reading, such as before bedtime or after dinner. Ensure a quiet and comfortable environment free from distractions.

Choose Engaging Books

Select books that cater to your child's interests and reading level. Visit libraries or bookstores together to explore different genres and authors. Additionally, consider incorporating a variety of texts, including picture books, fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.


Read Aloud

Reading aloud to your child can enhance their listening skills, vocabulary, and comprehension. Take turns reading paragraphs or pages to make it interactive. Encourage discussions about the story, characters, and predictions.

Create a Reading Corner

Designate a cozy reading corner in your home with cushions, blankets, and a selection of books. Make this space inviting and comfortable for your child to enjoy reading independently.
