Early years education at Portfield School is nurturing, fun and very much child-led. Children learn through play and experience in a happy and calm atmosphere, both inside the classroom and outside, in some of the many engaging outdoor spaces, such as Forest School
The skilled Early Years staff team follow a Total Communication approach to learning, which uses words, symbols, pictures, signing and objects to help children understand friendships and healthy relationships, respond positively to praise and establish routines and structure.
A clear and engaging topic focus is the hallmark to Early Years teaching and when appropriate, Early Years Foundation Development Matters, Key Stage 1 Mathematics and English frameworks may be introduced.
We are launching our very own student portal. Watch this space for this exciting new development.
