Early Years at Caythorpe - Our Vision


Here at Caythorpe Primary School, our vision for children's education is rooted in providing a stimulating and enriching environment that maximizes their learning potential, fosters their overall development, and prepares them for future success. Our intent is to create a culture of curiosity, exploration, and active engagement, where children feel safe, supported, and inspired to achieve their full potential.


Pedagogy and Planning:


To bring our vision to life, we take a child-centred approach that values each child's unique background, abilities, and interests. Our knowledgeable early years practitioners use a variety of teaching methods, such as play-based learning and interactive communication, to enhance children's development across all areas of learning. We carefully plan activities and adapt our curriculum to provide inclusive and supportive learning experiences. Through ongoing assessment and observation, we tailor our teaching to meet the individual needs of each child. We teach children to use Plan, Do, Review to support their learning, encouraging them to take an active role in their educational journey.




Our learning environment is designed to stimulate independent thinking, creativity, and curiosity. Both indoor and outdoor spaces are arranged to offer diverse learning opportunities, allowing children to explore and make choices that reflect their interests. We supply high-quality resources that encourage open-ended play and problem-solving skills. Our environment promotes positive relationships, with areas for quiet reflection, group collaboration, and social interaction, nurturing empathy, emotional well-being, and self-regulation.


Personal Development and Well-being:


We place a strong emphasis on nurturing children's personal, social, and emotional development. Through our inclusive approach, children develop self-confidence, resilience, and a positive attitude towards learning. They build strong relationships with peers, staff, and families, showing empathy, respect, and inclusivity in their daily interactions.

By laying a strong foundation in early years education, we aim to inspire a lifelong love for learning and set children on a path of continuous growth and development. Join us on this exciting journey at Caythorpe Primary School!

We hold transition events to welcome our new pupils into Reception.
Parents and carers are invited to a transition meeting as well as transition days for children to visit their class and meet their new teachers and other pupils.
