Early Years

Early Years Vision Statement at Heritage Park Primary School

In our Reception class, we believe our children have the right to:

  • Be happy, healthy, enthusiastic and confident with high self-esteem and self-worth
  • Feel safe and secure and have a sense of belonging
  • Feel valued as an individual
  • Be independent, curious, creative and resilient learners
  • Be courageous and take risks, challenging themselves and each other
  • Know they have a voice, feel heard and that they can make a difference
  • Be able to identify and communicate their own needs and feelings
  • Respect themselves, each other, their communities and environment
  • Experience the awe and wonder of the world in which they live, through providing a rich cultural capital
  • Establish effective and supportive relationships and be able to work collaboratively
  • Be lifelong learners with a love of learning
  • Have high aspirations, build on their previous best and excel in whatever they choose to do
  • A variety of experiences that promote a love of literature and develop early reading skills
  • Experience a range of activities which promote both their physical and mental well-being
  • Have a positive transition into Year 1

To enable this, we offer:

  • A stimulating, safe, secure and welcoming environment, both inside and outside
  • Experiences that value, reflect, celebrate and build on our diverse community
  • A range of challenging and motivating learning opportunities within a broad and balanced curriculum, including learning through play and exploration
  • Opportunities that promote healthy lifestyles
  • Effective systems of communication between home and school
  • Respectful, trusting and effective relationships
  • Supportive transition processes when starting school and moving on to Year 1
  • A highly skilled, motivated and committed staff who act with professional integrity
  • Establishing and maintaining a dynamic and inclusive ethos which ensures there are consistently high expectations for all
  • Flexibility in our approach and a willingness to always reflect and improve on our classroom practice, supported by effective professional development
