EYFS Mrs Laidlaw Class 1

At Belford Primary School we are passionate about learning in the early years. We believe that by developing a strong foundation based on the prime areas of learning, communication and language, personal, social and emotional development, and physical development we can ignite the children curiosity and enthusiasm, build their capacity to learn and form relationships that will enable them to become lifelong learners.


These prime areas are then strengthened and applied through four specific areas.

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

We aim to facilitate good, structured, play opportunities, both indoors and outdoors through a strong mix of adult led teaching and child initiated learning, supporting children to become inquisitive, curious learners who can question things around them. Much learning is planned for outdoors; we believe there is no such thing as bad weather – just inappropriate clothing.
