At Grands Vaux Primary School we offer a curriculum which is broad and balanced and which builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills of all children, whatever their starting points, as they progress through the school. The curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of the Jersey Curriculum 2014 and other experiences and opportunities which best meet the learning and developmental needs of the pupils in our school. The aim of our curriculum is for pupils to have the skills to be successful, independent and motivated learners in readiness for their next stage of education.
The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils and their understanding of the core values of our society are woven through the curriculum.
The outdoor environment and the local community are considered an opportunity for active learning for all our pupils.

Early Years Foundation Stage
Children in Nursery and Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. This learning challenges children and encourages them to develop into independent, motivated learners and thinkers, full of curiosity about the world around them within a fun, happy and secure environment.
Our Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is based on seven areas of learning:
• Communication and Language
• Personal, Social and Emotional Development
• Physical Development
• Understanding of the World
• Expressive Arts and Design
Children have opportunities to explore, enquire and to take risks through practical, hands-on learning experiences. At our school, we have a high quality outside learning environment which the children are able to use throughout the day.
Our year group termly newsletters are available via the school website, in the parents area.
