Sarum Class

Hello and a warm welcome to St Barnabas School, our school community and our Reception Class Sarum! On behalf of the Staff, Governors, children and parents, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you and your family to our school community. 


We are delighted that you and your child are embarking on your education journey with us. We are very much looking forward to meeting you all, but for the time being we have created this webpage to give you an overview of information, some helpful resources and an insight into the Early Years curriculum.


We hope that the information on this page will answer many of the questions that you have about your child starting school with us in September and assure you that we will contact you as new information is available about your child's induction. 


In the meantime, you can also keep up to date with us through our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages. 

Welcome from your teacher Mrs Morgan!

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum guidance details objectives and milestones for different age points throughout children's development. It consists of 7 areas of learning.



•Communication and Language

•Personal, Social and Emotional Development

•Physical Development




•Understanding the World

•Expressive Arts and Design


As well as these prime and specific areas children are also supported to develop Characteristics of Effective Learning. These determine what kind of learner your child will become. 


Do they enjoy what they set out to do?

Are they willing to have a go?

Do they find new ways to do things?

Can they be involved and concentrate? 

Do they have their own ideas?

Can they choose ways to do things?
