In the Early Years Foundation Stage at Richmond Academy we believe that the education and well-being of our pupils is paramount. A consistent approach to high quality teaching and learning will lead to a high quality education for all. We provide children with a safe and stimulating learning environment where children flourish.  

Learning should be fun and we strongly believe in providing the children with first hand experiences, valuing the importance of the outdoor environment to develop children’s thinking, problem solving skills and physical development.  

We believe that every child is unique and we respond to the children’s needs, curiosity and imagination when planning their learning and enhancing the continuous provision. The children are given the opportunity to investigate, explore and learn through play with the support of well-trained adults, who also support the development of social skills and self-esteem in children.  

Each day the children will learn as a whole class, in small groups and independently through play. We have time each day dedicated to the specific teaching of reading, writing and maths.  

We are committed to giving the children at Richmond the best possible start to their school life, teaching them the skills which will support their successes now and in the future. We enable children to become independent learners who value and love learning with and from others.
