Learning With Us

Our aim is to provide quality learning experiences that are structured, balanced, relevant to each individual child, and related to the real world.

In Nursery and Reception, your child will be learning skills, acquiring knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development.

Your child should develop 3 prime areas first. These are:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development

These prime areas are essential for your child's healthy development and future learning.

As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

At Briar Hill we follow the National Curriculum in all subjects. To find out more about our approach to teaching the Curriculum, please click here.
