Yew Tree Community School

At Yew Tree Community School, we believe that all children deserve the right to an engaging education which ignites excitement and curiosity, and inspires them to want to learn, alongside learning purposeful knowledge and skills. We want to provide children with memorable experiences and key life skills during their time with us in EYFS. We want children to respect and care for others and to develop self-regulation and social skills.  By providing them with an education that does all of this, we believe children will have the best chance to become well- rounded, confident and happy individuals ready to succeed in an ever- changing world. At Yew Tree, we  follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework.

We teach our curriculum through the following subjects shown below.

The Prime Areas:

-Communication and Language

-Physical Development

-Personal, Social and Emotional Development


The Specific Areas:



-Understanding the World

-Expressive Arts and Design


Tests and Assessments

Good Level of Development (GLD)

Children are defined as having reached a Good Level of Development (GLD) at the end of the EYFS if they have achieved the expected level for the Early Learning Goals in the prime areas of learning and the specific areas of mathematics and literacy.

You will get the results of the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile when your child is at the end of Reception in July.
