"All children deserve the care and support they need to have the best start in life. Children learn and develop at a faster rate from birth to five years old than at any other time in their lives, so their experiences in early years have a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe, and happy childhood is important in its own right. Good parenting and high-quality early learning provide the foundation children need to fulfil their potential."

(Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, 2024) 



 At Milborne Port Primary School and The Beeches Pre-School, we offer a curriculum rich in wonder and memorable experiences. We work hard to provide a stimulating environment that provides exciting opportunities, promotes challenge, exploration, adventure and a real love of learning.

It is our intent that all children develop physically, verbally, cognitively and emotionally in an environment, which values all cultures, communities and people. We aim for our children to be confident and independent, to believe in themselves and interact positively with others. We have 12 Curriculum Goals, which are our aims for what we would like the children to become within their pre-school period and their first year of school. These are a confident communicator, independent individual, fantastic friend, amazing athlete, talented tool user, brilliant bookworm, wow writer, master of maths, exceptional explorer, compassionate citizen, proud performer and dynamic designer.

We understand that play is an integral part of learning and this is at the heart of our early years curriculum. We believe that the correct mix of adult directed and uninterrupted child-initiated play ensures the best outcomes for pupils. Warm and positive relationships between staff and children, consistent routines and strong relationships with parents are key. We recognise the crucial role that early year’s education has to play in providing firm foundations upon which the rest of a child’s education is successfully based-‘Building a Foundation for Life’.
