Early Years Curriculum
At Kirkland Academy we deliver an exciting curriculum to all our pupils. The Early Years is a particularly exciting time for children as they learn through play; exploring and developing through hands-on learning. Our curriculum is topic-lead and we adapt our planning to suit pupils' interests.
Children are assessed in the Early Years through collaborative working with parents. We have an observation display that parents and adults within school can add to, with relevant observations of children (eg. 'Can count to 10 confidently').
We use the Early Years Development Matters document to help track children's progress from entry to our nursery, right through to the end of Reception, when they work towards the Early Learning Goals.
Please view the following document for more information on the exciting journey through the Early Years.
