Reception

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is a very important stage in learning at Hartburn Primary School. Children develop quickly in the early years and early years practitioners aim to do all they can to help the children have the best possible start in life.

The content of the curriculum for Reception can be found by clicking on the Curriculum Overview.
