Our Intent and Aims

Within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at Packmoor Ormiston Academy we aim to;

  • Give each child a happy, positive and enjoyable start to their school life within a safe and secure environment.
  • Establish solid foundations and foster a deep love of learning.
  • Enable each child, through encouragement and high expectations, to develop socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually in order to thrive in a diverse and ever- changing world.
  • Offer a structure for learning that has a range of starting points and unlimited opportunity for development.
  • Offer a broad and rich curriculum.
  • Encourage children to develop independence within a nurturing and supportive atmosphere.
  • Support children to build relationships through the development of social skills such as cooperation and sharing.
  • Help each child to recognise their own strengths and achievements by experiencing success and developing their confidence to work towards personal goals.
