Vision Statement 

Our vision for Early Years is to create an inclusive environment that sets the foundations of all learning through play and high quality opportunities, whilst respecting children’s cultures and celebrating diversity.

Meet the Staff





In EYFS, we teach through a combination of play, child led and adult lead learning following the national guidance "Development Matters". The 7 areas of development are:


  • Communication and Language (Speaking, Listening and Understanding)

  • Physical (Self care and Movement)

  • Personal, Social and Emotional (Behaviour and Making relationships)

  • Literacy (Reading and Writing)

  • Mathematics (Shape and Number)

  • Understanding the World (Science, Technology, Religion)

  • Expressive Arts and Design (Art, Music and Dance)


At Somers Heath, we have a different focus topic each half term to inspire, intrigue and excite our children, while giving them the opportunities they need to develop and learn. Have a look at our topics below!
