About Us

Ashford Park 2021 & New to Reception September 2020

If you would like to apply for a place for your child to join our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at Ashford Park Primary School in September 2021, please find the following information which may be of interest to you.

During these truly unusual times (August 2020), we have compiled the following information for our children and their families, who are joining our great school in September 2020. We hope that you find the information useful to aid your decision making in readiness for September 2021!

With kind regards from the Ashford Park EYFS team.


We look forward to welcoming you and your children to Ashford Park Primary School in September 2020.

In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at Ashford Park Primary School, our aims are:

  • to support children in making a confident transition into school
  • to provide a happy, caring and safe learning environment
  • to plan learning experiences that meet the individual needs and interests of every child through a balanced provision of adult-led and child-initiated opportunities
  • to support children to become confident and competent learners so that they are able to reach their potential
  • to provide a broad and balanced high-quality curriculum in line with EYFS guidance
  • to foster positive home school links with parents and carers

To aid this truly unique transition during these uncertain times of COVID-19, we have a produced several presentations, which will provide you with more information about our school, how the Reception classes 'function', our shared expectations, and hopefully answer many of your  questions.

We use the Development Matters in the EYFS document as guidance to ensure that we deliver high standards of early education and care that supports the development of every child. These principles underpin all future learning by supporting and fostering the children’s personal, social and emotional wellbeing. It encourages positive attitudes and dispositions towards learning, and promotes learning through play.
