Our Setting

The Early Years Foundation Stage at Ravensmere Infant School

Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five 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 together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up. – Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework 2021


At The Ravensmere Infant School we believe that young children are unique individuals who have the right to be motivated, independent and successful learners. We aim to achieve this through a balance of play based and adult directed, active learning, planning rich contexts that connect with children’s interests and supported by highly skilled adults who nurture and facilitate learning.
